Acquaints students with the basic tenets of Crisis / Hostage Negotiation and Crisis Intervention.
This one-day Class is designed for law enforcement patrol officers, correctional officers, and security personnel to acquaint them with the basic tenets of Crisis / Hostage Negotiation and Crisis Intervention.
Many people are living with stress, trauma, and mental illness. A crisis situation can unfold very quickly when a patrol officer arrives on the scene. It may be necessary for the responding officer to communicate with the person in crisis. This can “buy or stall for time” until the Crisis / Hostage Negotiation Team arrives and gets into place.
These skills are not taught in the academy or offered as an in-service training. In today’s stressful world, these skills can be used by officers who find themselves in an escalating crisis situation which demands immediate assessment and response.
Any situation can trigger a crisis in someone’s life. From a divorce and child custody battle to a possible workplace violence issue. Added to the mix, are traumatized military personnel returning home from the war zone and people struggling with mental illness while living on the streets of America. Recently there have been cases that hit too close to home such as negotiating with a fellow officer. This is the “New Normal” we live in now.
This class will address the different types of incidents an officer may face. By determining and conducting an appropriate response to situations involving a crisis, the student will gain the knowledge and hands-on skills needed to act tactically, logically, and compassionately working towards a successful outcome. The class will also provide personal stress management tools and skills for dealing with crisis situations and stress.
