5 hours – 2 hours Interpersonal Communication /3 hours Technical Studies (Online)
Presented by: Special Agent (Ret) Karin Houston, Robert ‘Bob’ Ragsdale, Sergeant (Ret) Troy King
Course Description: Warrant service is one of two primary circumstances for stand-offs in the United States (Domestic Violence situations are the other). Frequency, the ever-increasing risk environment facing law enforcement and the close scrutiny of warrant service outcomes, compel us to take a closer look at the expanded role of crisis negotiators in the planning and execution of high-risk warrants. Crisis Negotiation Teams can play an expanded role in warrant service preparation, especially with the gathering and analysis of risk-relevant intelligence.
While the tactical team focuses on the ‘target location’, intelligence regarding the neighborhood, surrounding facilities, and the subject’s history beyond basic criminal checks, may be critical to reducing risk. This course will cover the expanded role of CNT in high-risk warrant planning and execution and guide students through the development of planning checklists and loud hail scripts.
Techniques regarding the management of non-responsive subjects will be addressed with emphasis on collaborative approaches with tactical resources. This course will require students to participate in the preparation of planning and intelligence checklists and loud hail scripts for a variety of warrant service circumstances. Students will also learn the importance of CNT deployment with tactical teams during high-risk warrant service.
This 5-hour online presentation includes student activities which will reinforce concepts discussed in the presentation.
Students completing the entire course will receive a certificate for 5 hours of continuing education credit through MO POST.
