How was the CIT developed?
The NJC applied for and received funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance for a Local Law Enforcement Block Grant in 1997 to fund the development and training of a team.
Volunteer community mediators and staff were initially trained to provide these specialized services through the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office. Check out their site for more history by clicking here.
