    Crisis Negotiation Team

    The Crisis Negotiations Team is a multi-agency team with representatives from the GFPD, GFSO, and UNDPD. The Crisis Negotiations Team is comprised of officers who deal with people involved in crisis situations and try to resolve those situations in a peaceful manner. The negotiators may deal with suicidal subjects, barricaded subjects, suspects caught in crimes in progress or hostage situations. At least one team member also accompanies the Special Weapons and Tactics on all of their callouts. They are there to assist SWAT and to be on the scene of the incident should a negotiator be required immediately.

    Contact Sgt. Derik Zimmel for more information regarding the Crisis Negotiation Team.
