Congratulations!

Sergeant Phillip Rippinger is a Missouri Department of Corrections CIT Officer at South Central Corrections Center.  Recently he was able to utilize de-escalation and communication skills he learned in Crisis Intervention Teams certification class to potentially prevent a civilian from taking their own life. This is the second time that Sergeant Rippinger was able to assist this individual to seek psychiatric help and prevent self-harming actions. The civilian and Sergeant Rippinger are members of the same church. The civilian sometimes suffers from suicidal thoughts and has bouts of depression when not taking his prescribed medication. Sergeant Rippinger was able to keep this civilian on the phone and talking while also alerting the authorities of the situation. Sergeant Rippinger communicated with the local county sheriff department where they were able to take the civilian into custody and provide further assistance.
