What Is The KCPD’s Crisis Intervention Team All About?
The Kansas City Police Department had a meet the public gathering at Palestine Baptist Church back in December. JoJR was there and met some officers that we thought the public should get to know. The Crisis Intervention Team works with officers that have had traumatic experiences or may be experiencing PTSD. We will find out about how officers are evaluated after traumatic experiences and if there are any specific evaluations they must take to join the force.
