Crisis Negotiation Team
The Rogers Police Department Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) is a seven member team with a Team Supervisor. The CNT's mission is to resolve, through negotiation, selected incidents that have significant violent potential, such as suicidal subjects, barricaded subjects, and hostage situations.
The CNT selects potential members for the team by oral interviews, supervisor evaluations, past job performance, and the successful completion of a negotiation scenario.
CNT training consists of checking and operating the negotiation equipment and conducting negotiation scenarios to enhance and sharpen each member's communication and active listening skills.
