THIS IS A TEMPORARY GRANT-FUNDED POSITION. FUNDING IS AVAILABLE ANNUALLY WITH NO EXPIRATION DATE AT PRESENT.   In July 2021, the Boston Police Department (BPD) was awarded a Massachusetts Department of Mental Health Jail/Arrest Diversion Grant to support the development of a Crisis Intervention Team Training and Technical Assistance Center (TTAC). Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT) Training, which originated in 1988 in Memphis, Tennessee, provides police officers and invested community stakeholders with 40 hours of training on identifying mental illness, improving officers’ de-escalation skills and learning about resources that can be utilized to assist people with mental illness and substance abuse issues. National data reveals that officers who are trained in CIT have enhanced preparedness, greater confidence and reduced social distance during encounters with individuals who have serious mental illness and substance use disorders. The BPD received this grant funding to develop its own 40–hour CIT training. While this training will have at its foundation the core elements common to all CIT trainings, it will also be tailored to specifically address those issues that are most relevant to the Boston community and to take advantage of the many unique resources and partnerships that Boston provides. Boston’s CIT TTAC will be spearheaded by the BPD’s Street Outreach Unit (SOU), in partnership with the BPD Academy. The CIT Training Coordinator will report directly to the commander of the SOU, which focuses on response and outreach related to mental health, substance use and homelessness. Guidance related to grant management/reporting will be provided by the BPD’s Office of Research and Development (ORD).   Brief Job Description (essential functions of the job):   Oversight will be provided by the Commander of the SOU, who oversees all efforts related to mental health, homelessness and substance use disorder, and the Superintendent of the BPD Academy. The full-time CIT Coordinator will report directly to the Commander of the SOU. When not actively working on coordinating CIT trainings, the Coordinator will provide general assistance to the SOU, which operates citywide and in partnership with numerous agencies both inside and outside the city. The DMH-funded CIT Coordinator will be responsible for collecting and managing data pertaining to the establishment of Boston’s CIT-TTAC.
