Crisis/Hostage Negotiators are an elite group of law enforcement and corrections professionals with advanced training and skills to resolve crises involving the taking of hostages, barricaded subjects and potential suicides.  The complex nature of crisis negotiation requires negotiators to maintain their skills through training and networking in order to stay abreast of changes in laws, techniques, and best practices.

Our goals are simple. We want to improve member’s skills through quality training, technology-focused information exchange, and through networking with experienced negotiators. We want to establish and maintain a close working relationship among negotiators throughout the State of Missouri.
