The Tactical Response Unit (TRU) was created as a resource to effectively deal with difficult and
potentially dangerous situations. The 12-man unit works on a volunteer basis
under the direction of the Team Commander and responds as needed to incidents or
situations such as hostage barricades, high-risk search warrants and/or arrest
warrants, dignitary protection, specialized security for high profile trials, or
any other detail requiring specialized training or skills. The TRU is comprised of:

1 Team Commander

1 Team Leader

1 Asst. Team Leader

2 Snipers

6 Operators

1 Tactical Medic

The TRU trains an average of 16 hours per month.
