The Precinct One Constable’s Office formed a Tactical Response Team (TRT) to address a need for solutions to critical incident management. The team’s main function is to provide support to patrol officers and detectives in high-risk situations or raids. Each Tactical Response Team member must complete a minimum 60 hour Basic S.W.A.T. certification course covering instruction in areas of special weapons applications, use of force, less than lethal weapons & munitions, search and rescue techniques, and chemical restraints. Each member receives additional training every month to include defensive tactics, tactical shooting and building entry to name a few. Members of the Tactical Response Team serve in other capacities within the agency, and are only called upon as a team during incidents where they are needed. The Tactical Response Team members are on call-out around the clock. Qualifications to become a member of the Tactical Response Team include successful completion of a rigorous physical agility test, psychological testing and evaluation, advanced firearms qualifications and work-performance evaluations.
