TCTI Crisis Negotiators (hostage) team is prepared to mobilize for immediate response to any location within most Southern California regions – 24/7/365 – for situations involving hostages and/or barricaded suspects.
TCTI mental health professionals are professionally trained from either the California Association of Hostage Negotiators, San Jose State University or the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Hostage Negotiations.
TCTI’s 12 Crisis Negotiators (hostage) can confer with on-scene staff for the:
- psychological profiles of suspects,
- effects of medications on suspect behavior,
- negotiation techniques, and
- probable impact of certain techniques used with the suspect
Most consultations would be done by phone, but if needed, a mental health professional can respond to the incident.
