Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) – specially trained personnel provide tactical response to hostage situations, barricaded persons, sniper and terrorism incidents, crowd control during major disturbances or riots, work or school place violence and high-risk search warrant entries for various investigative units.
Crisis Negotiators – can be called upon in incidents involving barricaded subjects, hostage takers, or persons threatening suicide. Crisis negotiators must establish contact with subjects, identify their demands, and work to resolve tense and often volatile standoffs without loss of life.

Mobile Command/Mobile Command Post (MCP) – The Department maintains a technically trained staff comprised of both sworn and non-sworn personnel to operate the MCP. Uses of the MCP include an unlimited number of situations where a complex operational response to an emergency or crisis situation is necessary. Some of the uses of the MCP include barricaded suspects, processing major crime scenes, natural disasters, major transportation accidents such as plane crashes or train derailments, civil disorder, lost persons and special events to educate the public. The MCP is particularly effective in isolated areas where there may be limited or no accessibility to technical resources necessary for effective on-scene management of an incident or event.
