Crisis Intervention Team
In order to serve the residents of the Town of Leesburg to the best of its ability, the Leesburg Police Department has at its disposal a Crisis Intervention Team (C.I.T). This team is made up of seasoned officers as well as staff from the Loudoun County Department of Mental Health Emergency Services Unit. The team responds to incidents such as barricades, suicidal persons, or hostage situations. The goal of the team is to facilitate the safe recovery of citizens or officers from any dangerous situation. Crisis Intervention Team members train at least once a month as a unit. All team members are trained in the art of negotiations. If an officer is selected for the team, they receive 80 hours in basic and advanced negotiations. All members are volunteers. Their roles on the team are in addition to their regularly assigned duties. The Crisis Intervention team works hand in hand with the Emergency Response Team.
