Crisis Negotiation Team

Print
PhoneThe Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) consists of members for all divisions within the Department.  

The CNT trains monthly as a unit and stages real-life scenarios. Training includes the S.W.A.T. team several times a year. The CNT also trains and shares intelligence with local agencies, such as the Orlando Police Department and the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

The officers of the CNT are members of the Florida Association of Hostage Negotiators (FAHN), which meets annually to update information and intelligence. All members are trained extensively in interview tactics, identifying behavior and personality types and disorders to better bring about the resolution of any crisis situation, or pass intelligence along to the S.W.A.T. team.
