The Crisis Negotiations Team’s (CNT) mission is to safely resolve critical incidents involving barricaded and suicidal persons, along with hostage situations.
During 2019, the CNT was activated for a subject who was in crisis. After a lengthy standoff and negotiation, the subject exited his house and was taken into custody without incident.
Throughout the year, CNT members work collaboratively with the Kentucky League of Cities as well as other Crisis Negotiation Teams from across the state to further the mission of the Kentucky Association of Crisis Negotiators (KACN). The development of KACN is beneficial to our agency as it provides additional training opportunities.
