FBI Hostage Rescue Team

The Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) has employed the services of Dr. Scott Middleton, Special Psychological Services, for the past six years to psychologically evaluate potential new personnel for an assignment with HRT. This is accomplished through Dr. Middleton’s administration of standardized tests and his observations of the personnel during an arduous two-week selection. Dr. Middleton’s conclusions are heavily relied upon as a determining factor regarding the viability of a candidate. This process has been vetted by FBI Headquarters Industrial Psychologists and is periodically re-evaluated to ensure compliance with various standards.
