Twelve students from Rothenberg School in Mt. Auburn received diplomas Saturday for completing a boot camp style program by Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig.
The pilot program is called Children in Trauma Intervention or C.I.T.I. Craig based it off a similar program from Los Angeles where he worked prior to Cincinnati.
The three month program began in Jan. 2012 with 26 students from the 7th and 8th grade who were having troubles at home and school. Cincinnati Police officers volunteered their time to train the students in physical fitness. Their work also included drug prevention, problem solving and self esteem.
