MISSOURI CIT CONFERENCE
It was truly a pleasure to work with the processionals at the MO CIT Council. They adapted to changing circumstances, reached a large audience and were able to provide an educational, interactive experience for everyone involved. It was a great way to share information, reach new people and make lasting connections. This is a conference that should be at the top of everyone’s list!
- Karen Solomon, Blue H.E.L.P | Honored Guest/Presenter at the 2020 MO CIT Virtual Conference
The MO CIT Conference continues to be an amazing conference. I’m always impressed by your recognition of the intersection of mental health and policing; your ability to find information relevant to both law enforcement and mental health professionals is always top-notch. It was a privilege to be allowed to contribute this year for the first virtual conference!
- Holly Nemec, Manager of Community Relations, BHR | Presenter at the 2020 MO CIT Virtual Conference
“This was my first time at the Missouri CIT Conference and I was truly impressed by the audience. Large crowds in a ballroom tend not to be great for getting laughs, but with such a tremendous group of dedicated professionals it exceeded my expectations! In addition, their schedule built in time a book signing, which was a nice touch. I had so many memorable interactions during the signing, like meeting the honorable Captain Will Akin of Clay County. After we connected, I told him he should run for President! I’d return to Missouri CIT anytime!”
- Matt Bellace, PhD, Clinical Psychologist/ Comedian | Keynote Speaker at the 2019 MO CIT Conference
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Clarke A. Paris
"Again, I have to tell you that your conference was incredible! You and your team pulled the conference off as if you had done it hundred times previously. Thank you for allowing Tracie and I to be a part of it! We had a blast and met some amazing people.
As I mentioned at dinner, I received an anonymous call the evening of the conference. An unidentified subject who wanted to remain anonymous, called me and said that our presentation saved his life and that he was now going to contact a counselor.
We receive calls like this pretty regularly, but they NEVER become routine nor do they lose the impact they have on Tracie and I."
“The training leadership the CIT Council provides through their annual conference for law enforcement agencies across Missouri and beyond is amazing and inspiring. I continue to feel extremely blessed and uplifted from the conference.”
Sgt. Kevin Briggs, Ret.
" attended and was honored to speak at the 2018 Missouri CIT Conference. I have to say, the structure of the conference, professionalism of the staff, and courses offered were quite incredible. I wish I knew about this conference while I was active with the California Highway Patrol. I was able to see old friends, make new ones and discover new methods to become better at my craft (which is now teaching suicide prevention, active listening skills and negotiations). Even an old dog can still learn! To the Missouri CIT Council, thank you for having me and keep up the great work! We need more conferences like this."
