 How to Survive a Hostage Situation

by Garry Moneypenny


Unfortunately, in todays’ society, there stands the chance anyone of us could find ourselves the victim of a hostage situation. These situations have happened in the workplace, shopping malls, churches, schools, hospitals and in our residential settings. How we react, what we do and what we say, makes a big difference in the success rate for our loved ones and ourselves in surviving this type of event.


When is the most dangerous time of a hostage event? What is going through the mind of the perpetrator? What are the Police doing? What will I be feeling and thinking? Should I talk to the perpetrator? Should I try to escape? What should I say or do?


These questions and many more will be answered by Garry Moneypenny, Retired Chief Deputy, a 37 year Law Enforcement Veteran who has handled numerous of these types of situations. Garry, who has been studying these types of events for over 30 years, is a leading authority in hostage negotiations. Come hear and learn what could help protect both you, your employees and your business during and after one of these events.


Garry spent three years in the United States Army as a Military Policeman. Garry then spent 30 years as a Law Enforcement Officer in Springfield Township, OH, working his way up to Chief of Police. Garry was then recruited and hired by the Summit County Sheriff's Office where he served as Chief Deputy/Assistant Sheriff for four years.


Garry is a Graduate of the Police Executive Leadership College in Columbus, Ohio, a Graduate of the School of Police Staff and Command from Northwestern University Traffic Institute and is also a Graduate of the 226th Session of the National FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.


Garry was trained in Hostage Negotiations and Crisis Intervention” by instructors from the Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy, the New York City Police Department, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office and the FBI.


Garry served 15 years as a Hostage Negotiator for a multi-jurisdictional SWAT Team serving 22 different Police jurisdictions in Summit and Portage Counties, OH. Over his law enforcement career, Garry has been instrumental in the successful conclusion of numerous suicide, hostage and barricaded situations.
