The Mansfield Police Department Crisis Negotiation Team recently attended the annual Crisis Negotiation Competition and Seminar hosted by Texas State University’s School of Criminal Justice, Hays County Sheriff’s Office, and the San Marcos Police Department.

The Mansfield PD team placed 9th out of 38 agencies throughout the country. Mansfield Firefighter and new team member Kenneth Price served as the team’s primary negotiator for the competition.

This competition is one of the longest running negotiator training venues in the country. Seminars provide advanced and basic training for hostage/crisis negotiators and personnel involved with critical incident situations and may include police, correctional officers and jailers, tactical/special operations team members, other crisis response personnel, administrators and managers.
