In the police force, is there a team specially designed for dealing with hostage situations?

or for dealing with bank robberies?

Also, who are the ones who do all the research such as finding out who criminals are, if they have a previous record, and so on? Is that just normal cop work, or is that a specific title or branch of officer?

Thank in advance!

    They certainly have people trained to deal with hostage situations – though it doesn’t happen that often so it won’t be a dedicated team just doing that. They will all be doing other police work as well, and will be called on as needed.

    A lot of the background intelligence work these days will be done by civilian staff based in the police HQ – obviously with input and supervision from officers, but if you have some fairly routine work to do (checking records, CCTV, etc) you don’t waste the time of a costly police officer to do it all.

    there are hostage negotiaters and yes they are specially trained, and then databases are accessible for all police personnel
