    Northwest Missouri State University Police Officer Kristina Martinez was recognized Thursday by the Mid America Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Council for her work with consumers of mental health needs.

    Martinez was among 13 officers honored as a Member of the Year.

    Northwest University Police Sgt. Anthony Williams, the CIT coordinator, nominated Martinez for the award and said she was deserving for the continuous effort she devotes to supporting and assisting Northwest students.

    “She exemplifies what it means to be, not only a great officer, but a great CIT Officer,” Williams said. “Officer Martinez takes the time to listen to the needs of our students and provides them with the best resources to ensure their well-being. Students are naturally drawn to Officer Martinez because of her personable and professional character. She is heavily engaged in our community and is constantly looking for ways to help us improve at University Police.”

    Martinez joined the University Police Department in 2005 and also serves as the self-defense coordinator.
