2013 CIT Utah Officer of the Year

Officer Anthony Yuen, Layton City Police Department

CIT Utah congratulates Officer Anthony Yuen of the Layton City Police Department as the 2013 CIT Utah Officer of the Year.  NAMI Utah and the Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health joined CIT Utah in presenting Officer Yuen the award during the 2013 NAMI Utah Conference in Salt Lake City.

Officer Yuen's nomination described an incident involving an intoxicated man who was experiencing symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  Due to Officer Yuen's CIT training, Officer Yuen was able to recognize the man as struggling with his disorder, utilized appropriate tactics to calm the man, and rendered the situation safe for all involved without the use of force. 

Officer Yuen's actions exemplify what the CIT program is all about.  For this event as well as Officer Yuen's demonstration of a positive CIT role model, we again congratulate Officer Yuen on becoming the 2013 CIT Utah Officer of the Year.
