Event Description:

Join us for the 2020 Missouri Association of Crisis Negotiators Annual Conference in St Charles, Missouri.

This year’s line-up has some great new faces and topics and a few familiar faces!

Conference favorite, Harry Drucker of the Los Angeles County California Sheriff’s Office will be presenting two case studies this year: “When Negotiations Go Mobile” and “Hacienda Heights Barricade”.

Sergeant Christopher Burley of the Portland Police Bureau, Portland, Oregon will be presenting on a very timely and relevant topic: CNT Response to Protesters. This very practical presentation offers police agencies a number of excellent strategies for the use of CNT when responding to protestors.

Corporal Duane Boynton of the Vancouver, Washington Police Department will be presenting an excellent case study: “Love Never Retires – Responding to the 80-year-old Active Shooter”. This presentation is brand new on the conference circuit and promises to be memorable.

Nao Thao-Kong and Brad Tatro of the Marathon County, Wisconsin Sheriff’s Office will be presenting one of the nation’s most interesting and heartbreaking case studies of the last few years: “March 22nd – Mobile active-shooter-turned-barricade”. This case study demonstrates, among other things, the importance of a communication’s center during a crisis negotiation.

Nationally recognized negotiator and CNT Trainer, Jan Dubina is presenting on the important topic of “Preparing Legally Sufficient Documents for Crisis Negotiation.” This presentation will discuss the value of properly documenting CNT activity during stand-offs illustrated by examples of cases wherein the lack of documentation played a role.

Each of these presentations have something for everyone in the field of crisis negotiation – crisis negotiators, dispatchers, tactical operators, and incident commanders.
