Hostage & Barricaded Suspects 1.0

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

When the actions of a violent or disturbed individual result in a crisis situation, law enforcement personnel are often forced to react in a high risk environment where the subject may be barricaded, has taken hostages, or is threatening suicide. Officers won't usually know what's inside the barricaded area, if there are firearms or explosives indicated, or the condition of the individuals involved. Given these challenges, first responders must be able to quickly assess the situation, contain the problem, secure the area, evaluate the threat to hostages or bystanders, call in specialized units as necessary, and be ready to react at any time during the response - a situation that could last for hours. Additionally, negotiators must engage the barricaded individual with the advantage of real-time information. This course provides officers and supervisors with basic response procedures and tactics for such challenging events.
