Agent Bachmann has attended numerous crisis negotiation training, including an intensive two-week training at Quantico as well as a three-day training on Negotiations with a Terrorist Mindset. She also teaches basic negotiations to local and state law enforcement officers. In addition to serving on the Crisis Negotiation Team, SA Bachmann also works Complex Financial Crimes in the South Bay.
