The Jamestown Police Department Crisis Resolution Team (C.R.T.) is a six-member team that is specially trained and equipped in the management of crisis situations such as hostage incidents, barricaded subjects, or suicidal subjects. The main purpose of the team is to bring crisis situations to a peaceful conclusion through the use of negotiations, thereby minimizing the potential for injury to citizens and officers.
All members of the team have been through the F.B.I. school for crisis negotiations. The team trains on a monthly basis, including joint training with the Special Weapons and Tactics team (SWAT), in order to keep their skills sharp for potential situations.
