The Incident Assessment Process


TAHN Region One Vice President Melanie Cagle will present this 8-hour course, which focuses on the Incident Assessment Process which may assist negotiation units with understanding the motivation of a subject, determining the risk of violence, and developing an appropriate negotiation strategy. During this course, Negotiators will be provided with various assessment forms that are practical for use in both negotiation training as well as for call outs. This course may be very helpful in not only understanding the risks of a particular situation, but will also assist teams with a logical, organized way to introduce information to the incident commander so that appropriate considerations can be made to determine the best course of action for an incident.
