BARTLETT — The Bartlett Police Department has become one of only a handful of area departments to have a Crisis Intervention Team, or CIT.
It is composed of five law enforcement officers who received intensive specialized training on dealing with people who have a mental illness or other behavioral disabilities.
And a new 911 emergency-phone service called Smart911 allows residents to alert police officers and firefighters about any special situations the emergency responders might come across if called to their home.
