Welcome to an association of law enforcement, mental health, criminal justice and corrections professionals, which is over 800 members strong. The men and women who make up the membership are dedicated to crisis intervention in a variety of situations, which require a highly skilled negotiator to bring about a successful resolution.

Crisis negotiators are an elite group of individuals with a vast amount of experience, skills and  knowledge. Conflict resolution is critical in the types of events that tend to require the use of  tactical and negotiation teams. Keeping current, with the skills necessary to effectively deal with  these types of situations, is paramount. The Florida Association of Hostage Negotiators believes  that regular training in this area is necessary to stay abreast of changes in the laws, ideologies,  practices and techniques.

The association periodically hosts regional training sessions throughout the state.  By joining, you will be placed on our electronic mail out system, so that you may be notified of such training. FAHN also participates with NCNA (National Council of Negotiators Association). This group is facilitated by the FBI, with the purpose of bringing together the various Negotiation Associations around the country to share information, ideas and training concepts.

Thanks for visiting the Florida Association of Hostage Negotiator's web site! FAHN is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality training to hostage negotiators and first responders.
