The Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) is a specially trained unit that resolves high-risk incidents through negotiations in an effort to reduce the possible risks associated with the use of force. The CNT maintains an immediate – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – operations response capability to conduct and manage on-scene negotiations during significant crisis events involving barricaded subjects, hostage incidents, suicidal individuals or any high risk situation.

Members of the CNT complete a rigorous application process and must pass the Federal Bureau of Investigations Basic Hostage Negotiation Course. The members are managed under national guidelines set forth by the National Crisis Negotiation Association.
