Emergency Response TeamThe Emergency Response Team provides dedicated tactical response in high-risk situations requiring an exceptional allocation of manpower and equipment. Members of the unit receive advanced training and equipment specializing in tactical responses to these situations.
The members of the Emergency Response Team are assigned to the team voluntarily after competing for the position. Only the most skilled officers are assigned to the team. Emergency Response Team members perform daily duties within the department including Patrol, Investigations, and Fire/Rescue. These officers are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in the event they are needed, and are often required to respond at a moment's notice to potentially dangerous situations.
The Emergency Response Team is deployed to handle situations that are deemed to be beyond the scope of the on-duty officers because of limitations in their equipment or expertise. These situations include:
Emergency Response Team members are trained and skilled in marksmanship with a variety of specialty weapons, entries and assaults into dwellings and other buildings as well as busses and other vehicles, vehicle take downs, dignitary protection, officer and hostage rescues, deployment of less-lethal munitions, and operation of other specialty equipment to accomplish the mission(s) of the team.
