This program is a collaboration between the LCSO, Loudoun County Mental Health, Substance Abuse & Developmental Health Services (MHSADS); Friends of Loudoun Mental Health; the National Alliance on Mental Illness – Northern Virginia; and the Loudoun Commonwealth's Attorney's Office.

The CIT program has also built community partnerships with the Arc of Loudoun, Boulder Crest Retreat, Chantilly RI Crisis Receiving Center, Community Regional Crisis Response,

In 2019, the LCSO partnered with MHSADS and held the first-ever three-day advanced CIT training in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The LCSO was also the first law enforcement agency in Virginia to hold a three-day Advanced Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) for School Resource Officers. The advanced training focuses on residents with Intellectual and developmental disabilities, especially children.
