The ARK defines a program model as promising if it does not satisfy the definition of an evidence-based program model, but meets one or more of the following criteria: Police dispatch protocols ensure that officers who have received CIT training are designated as the officer in charge on the scene if multiple officers respond to a crisis encounter.
Cases may be resolved informally without an arrest or the arrest charge may be dropped or withdrawn if the individual completes treatment. The co-responder model of CIT pairs police officers with clinical outreach workers who may be civilian employees of the police department or employees of partnering social service agencies.
The police officers and clinicians work collaboratively to co-manage crisis encounters and oversee referrals to treatment. Less research has investigated patient-level outcomes, such as reductions in criminal recidivism or improvements in mental health symptoms.
Retrospective studies of police encounters with mentally ill persons, and studies in which officers were given hypothetical vignettes of such encounters, have generally found no differences in the use of force or likelihood of making an arrest between CIT-trained and non-trained officers.
However, post hoc analyses suggest that CIT-trained officers may be less likely to use force when a mentally ill person is acting in an overtly defiant or psychotically agitated manner.
Additionally, CIT-trained officers were more likely than non-trained officers to carry a non-lethal electronic control device e.

Administration and Policy in Mental Health, 37 4 A multisite study found significantly better outcomes when CIT officers partnered with a crisis drop-off center that had a no-refusal policy for police referrals Steadman et al.
These outcomes were significantly better than for two other CIT programs that paired officers with clinicians in the field, but provided no assurance that treatment would be available after the immediate crisis was resolved.
These findings suggest that police may be more likely to forgo an arrest if they are confident that an individual will receive adequate treatment to prevent further entanglements with the law.
