Special Operations Unit (SWAT & CRT)
SPECIAL WEAPONS AND TACTICS (SWAT) The SWAT team provides specialized support to law enforcement operations during high-risk situations. Some of the activities that SWAT is responsible for include: dignitary protection, barricaded subjects, hostage situations, arrests of armed or dangerous persons, and any other incident that may require a special tactical response.
Crisis Response Team (CRT) CRT, the department crisis negotiation team, works in tandem with SWAT to attempt to resolve high-risk crises in the most peaceful manner possible. Their philosophy of "let's talk" is the guiding principle behind their primary mission to use an open dialogue in an attempt to prevent or minimize violence.
