This is a unique opportunity for Crisis Negotiation Teams from throughout the States of Florida and Georgia to experience both a seminar and challenge featuring negotiation with a Violent True Believer.
On Day 1, participants will attend a series of presentations featuring negotiation with a Violent True Believer. On Day 2, teams will participate in a scenario-driven competition. Up to 10 teams (8 negotiators each) may register. Other negotiators are encouraged to attend the seminar and the challenge for training and observation purposes. Individuals may register to be placed on an ad-hoc, multi-agency team. Judging criteria will be provided to each of the teams prior to the event.
Early registration is encouraged. A number of teams have expressed an interest in attending and we are limited in the number of teams who can participate to 10 teams of 8. Teams participating in the competition must provide at least one judge to a judging pool. Judges must have attended at least a 40-hour basic course and have at least 2 years of negotiation experience.
