Officers Train for Hostage Negotiation Situations in Clarinda
CLARINDA, Iowa -- If you were near Clarinda on Tuesday, there was a heavy police presence. It was not a case of an escaped inmate but rather training in case it ever happens. “We`re conducting tactical training scenarios in conjunction with our hostage negotiations and our tactical teams as they work through hostage situations,” said Doug Bolton with the Iowa Department of Corrections.
