Hostage Negotiations and Crisis Intervention Phase I and II
This course is hosted by the Walla Walla Police Department.
This course is designed to develop the student’s abilities to bring crisis situations, which often involve hostages, to successful conclusions through negotiation.
Students will learn and be evaluated through their participation in practical scenarios applying the theory learned in classroom sessions. The ideal candidate for selection as a negotiator for barricaded or hostage situations will be a sworn officer with several years of experience, a strong team player, and possess above average interviewing, communication and listening skills.
