Hostage Negotiation Unit

The Crisis Negotiation Team is a specially trained and equipped team of crisis negotiators designed to respond to situations including barricaded subjects, suicidal subjects, and hostage events. The unit works closely with other Charleston Police Department Special Operations Units including SWAT and the Explosive Devices Team. Additionally, the Team frequently calls upon community partners, such as Charleston County Mobile Crisis and the Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy.
