SUITLAND, MD (April 16, 2018) — Andrews Federal Credit Union recently sponsored the Burlington County 40-hour CIT Training in Burlington, New Jersey in an effort to support local law enforcement, and to bridge policing tactics used when dealing with veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

It is comprised of classroom instruction, community site visits and practical exercises delivered by local mental health professionals, CIT law enforcement instructors and other subject matter experts.

“Andrews Federal continues to be a dedicated sponsor and advocate for Burlington County’s goal of improving our community policing,” said Jarrod Broadway, Burlington Township Patrol Officer. “We appreciate their continued support of our officers and veterans.”
