Welcome To The Florida Association Of Hostage Negotiators
Welcome to an association of law enforcement, mental health, criminal justice and corrections
professionals, which is over 800 members strong. The men and women who make up the
membership are dedicated to crisis intervention in a variety of situations, which require a highly
skilled negotiator to bring about a successful resolution.
Crisis negotiators are an elite group of individuals with a vast amount of experience, skills and
knowledge. Conflict resolution is critical in the types of events that tend to require the use of
tactical and negotiation teams. Keeping current, with the skills necessary to effectively deal with
these types of situations, is paramount. The Florida Association of Hostage Negotiators believes
that regular training in this area is necessary to stay abreast of changes in the laws, ideologies,
practices and techniques.
The association periodically hosts regional training sessions throughout the state. By joining,
