We want our police department to be the best that it can be so that we may serve our community in the best ways possible. So we commend these officers and staff for continuing to improve themselves and their careers.

Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)

Congratulations to the most recent graduates of the Crisis Intervention Team training. This is an intensive training that gives our staff knowledge and tools when encountering a community member in mental crisis. The Burlington Police Department has reached a level of having 75% of our patrol staff trained in these life saving techniques. We understand more about mental illness and the resources in our community that lead to better outcomes for these interactions.
