Hostage Negotiation: First Responder Duties at Barricade Situation -2 TS, 2 LS, 2 IP

Course Description

This class may be used in a wide variety of situations to avoid escalating the situation or to get the negotiation process off to the best possible start. The original officer dispatched to the scene are the first to respond to a potential barricade/crisis situation and should be equipped with basic skills, if nothing else, not to make the situation worse. This class is limited in scope and designed to stabilize a crisis in the opening minutes. IN addition, it is limited in application and not intended to replace the trained crisis negotiator. If used properly, this training will resolve the situation before they grow into large, expensive manpower-absorbing siege type situations.

It is our hope that those that attend this course will become familiar with what a potential crisis/barricade situation may look like and h ow to respond accordingly. In addition, the student should learn what resources are available and what their capabilities are. Above all, we want the students to understand that their initial response to the situation may very well set the tone for the outcome.

We want the student to be aware that the best course of actonin at a potential barricade situation may be for him/her to begin a dialogue with the barricaded subject. They should know that in many situations the quicker we make the initial contact the better chance we might have for a successful conclusion. The student will be made familiar with various styles of communication for barricaded subject should they choose this contact.
