Hostage Negotiation Skills

You are the CEO of a global company.  You have representatives around the world.  The telephone rings late at night and a voice on the other end informs you that one of your staff has been kidnapped.  You have 12 hours to arrange payment or he dies.  Tell the police and he dies.

What do you do?

It is estimated that there are over 20 000 reported kidnappings worldwide per annum.  These range from high profile business individuals or their loved ones or employees to a small child snatched in a custody dispute.

Kidnappers fall into many categories and their motivations may be blurred by a number of factors.  Whatever the case, it is critical that the correct techniques are employed by those conducting negotiations in order to guarantee the safe return of the kidnapped individual.

ASIC Ltd. deploy trainers worldwide to provide bespoke theoretical and/or practical training to individuals or groupings who may be the likely First Responders to a Hostage or Kidnap Scenario.
