The Professional Community Intervention Training Institute was created in early 2005 specifically as a community/gang/crisis intervention institute that is a division of the much broader violence intercession-crisis abatement firm under Maximum Force Enterprises. Our firm has been in operation for over 35 years and has trained a multitude of diverse individuals and groups both nationally & internationally. Nationally cities like Atlanta Georgia, Corpuses Christi Texas, Seattle & Tacoma, Little Rock Arkansas, Washington D.C., Maryland Virginia, Sliver Springs, District of Columbia, Oakland California, Chicago Illinois and many others have received the expertise and operational refinement from our renowned certified training team. The PCITI street proven model was successful in garnishing the interest of international leadership. Our staff was invited to the countries of Ghana, Egypt, Cuba, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Uruguay, London, Sweden, and Togo to teach, train & assist in organization planning and development. To date we have visited over four continents where the PCITI model has been utilized as the “Standardized Protocol of Operation.”

The Professional Community Intervention Training Institute (PCITI) curriculum is based on the principle that the practice of holistic centered gang intervention/violence prevention must be guided by a professional, proactive, culturally sensitive approach to engaging individuals, the community, municipalities, and other stakeholders in creating and sustaining non-violent communities. To achieve this goal, the PCITI curriculum will equip intervention/outreach workers with the tools and strategies they need to be successful negotiators, problem-solvers, mentors and violence intercession specialists. Our operation provides a community-based and readily accessible demonstrated resource for crisis intervention specialists, outreach experts, supervisors, families of gang members, neighborhoods threatened by escalating gang violence, community advocates, emergency responders, social service personnel, mental health professionals, governmental proponents, law enforcement agencies and educational professionals to name a few.


P.C.I.T.I.’s preparatory training was developed to provide effective skill sets, direct protocol creation, standards of field operation, and critical thinking along with standard operating procedures-guidelines and replicable templates. This new, unique model of community-based intervention transforms the role of the “gang interventionist” to one of a “Professional Community Intervention First Responder.”
