New School Year, New Research
Over the course of the year, I will share any valuable insights I get from research and those I find in other studies and articles.
One quick bit of information I will share already is the confusion of is it crisis negotiation or hostage negotiation... or both? The quick answer (and I'll add more in a future article) is there has been a trend to move towards using the word "crisis" instead of "hostage."
The reason being, the law enforcement officials whose role includes that of a negotiator involves hostage situations only 4% percent of the time. That means 96% of the incidents they respond to are crisis situations not involving a hostage being taken.
Looking forward to a productive school year!
