Congratulations to Chief Corie Faggart and Lieutenant Jimmy Schneider for graduating from the North Carolina Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training this week.
CIT trains first responders to understand people who are experiencing mental health crises, intellectual/developmental disabilities and substance use challenges. Officers learn skills to de-escalate situations, and how to recognize people in crisis so they can get the help they need. It also teaches tools to encourage people who need treatment to access services available to them.
CIT trained officers are better prepared to interact with people experiencing mental health crises which results in safer interactions for everyone involved. It also improves the likelihood that people with mental illnesses and other brain disorders receive treatment in lieu of incarceration, when appropriate.

UPDATE Hwy 200 is now reopened. The trees have been removed but there has been no work on the power lines yet and the power company is not on scene. We recommend that you make plans to be without power overnight. ... See MoreSee Less
