Hostage Negotiations Team

The Middle Township Police Department employs officers that are certified and highly trained in Police Hostage Negotiations. This team regionalized in 2009 with Middle Township’s existing team acting as a foundation for the North end of the county. The team was made up of six (6) officers, currently there are four (4), who are available to respond to any incident within Middle Township or anywhere within the County to assist in negotiations. The team trains on a regular basis and is often called out in conjunction with the SWAT team.
