Mental Health in Wilmington

A large percentage of calls to the Wilmington Police Department involve a mental health issue. To effectively handle these situations, around one third of the Wilmington police force has engaged in Crisis Intervention Training (CIT). This one-week training program teaches officers de-escalation techniques and provides them with information on topics such as suicide, substance abuse, and autism.

The CIT program equips officers with a list of available mental health resources and services. Instead of taking individuals with mental health issues to jail, officers can help them find appropriate mental health treatment in Wilmington.
