We are continually training to provide better prepared and qualified officers at the NCSO.
These NCSO officers seen here attended the Texas Association of Hostage Negotiators training conference in Arlington.
Our crisis negotiators must attend a minimum of 40 hours of continuing education annually to maintain their certification.This year with over 350 in attendance, the TAHN conference provided an opportunity to meet and network with other officers and teams within our region and across the state of Texas.
As part of this years training, we were also able to attend a block of training conducted by Captain Matthias Proehl of Mannheim Germany Police Department. "Negotiation and Terrorism - A European Perspective" was certainly an eye opening experience.
We appreciate the opportunity to attend this invaluable training so that we may be better prepared to handle crisis situations.
The TAHN association also supported Breast Cancer Awareness month on Friday with many members wearing Pink Out Shirts.
