Crisis Negotiations Team

cntcrissisnegotiationsteamlogo.jpgMission Statement

The mission of the Boise Police Department's Crisis Negotiation Team is to provide the field commander with negotiators who have been specifically trained and equipped to diffuse critical incidents involving suspects who are suicidal, barricaded, hostage-taking or engaged in terrorist activities.

Negotiators seek to accomplish this task by persuasion and thus minimizing the need for the use of force; yet, they also continually provide the field and tactical (SOU) commanders with intelligence should a tactical solution be required.
