Command Staff


The Special Response Team (S.R.T.) consists of officers who are trained in marine rescue, extrication (the removal of victims from vehicles in crashes), and management of hazardous materials.  S.R.T. assists detectives in surveillance and stakeouts and maintains the department's special equipment, such as the Mobile Command Center, S.W.A.T. van, rescue truck and boat, and Kawasaki mules.  The S.R.T. officers are cross-trained as S.W.A.T. members and they are also trained as first-responders and are certified in CPR and First Aid. 

S.R.T. officers receive civil disturbance training and are taught how to handle and disperse various types of unruly gatherings while using the latest technology and the safest, most professional means to prevent injury to all involved.  They learn how to handle crowds and disturbances, practice prevention, intervention, operational, less than lethal force, mobile tactics and train in officer-citizen rescues.  The officers also practice field formations and learn how to use chemical agents, distraction devices, batons and protective gear.  Some officers receive Specialty Impact Munitions Certification by learning how to use munitions, such as projectiles and launchers like foam, wood, rubber, sponge and bean bags.  In addition, some officers are certified to instruct other officers in civil disturbance control.
