Upstate Shield 2012

The second annual Upstate Shield will be held on October 2, 2012, at Lockheed Martin Facility, Donaldson Center Airport in Greenville. This event is closed to the public; however we do encourage the media to be present. Upstate shield was created to facilitate good working relationships and enhance response to critical incidents in the upstate. Several upstate agencies participate in this event and will be sending their SWAT Team as well as their CNT (Crisis Negotiation Team). CNT is comprised of several qualified officers that work closely with SWAT. CNT’s main objective is finding peaceful resolutions; which is done by providing crisis intervention strategy and negotiation skills to save the lives of all people involved in critical incidents. Upstate Shield will allow all participating agencies to work together in sharing ideas and learning new skills through mock exercises of critical incidents.
