The Texas Association of Hostage Negotiators (TAHN) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing quality training to Hostage Negotiators, First Responders and other Law Enforcement professionals. TAHN members enjoy many benefits. They have opportunities to network with other negotiators not just from Texas, but from around the world as well.
There is no better place to network than the annual training conference. TAHN hosts an annual conference every November. This conference has grown every year and is attended by negotiators from around the United States and several other countries. Members are notified as the conference is being planned so that they can make early reservations to attend. More information about the Training Conference can be accessed (here).
Another benefit of membership in TAHN is regional training. Texas is divided into eight regions, each represented by a TAHN Region Vice President. It is that Regional Vice Presidents responsibility to coordinated quarterly training for members to attend. By attending the yearly conference and some of the regional training, Texas police negotiators can easily obtain 40 hours of TCOLE credits each year. This regional training is FREE to members.
