Critical Incident Team

Strategy Research & Development

The Critical Incident Team was created to research and develop strategies that create the most appropriate training, planning, and response to possible critical incidents. Critical incidents may include events such as active shooters at schools, businesses, and local events, as well as large scale weather or traffic related events.


The Team consists of members from several disciplines within the department to include: 

  • Command Staff

  • Communications

  • Crisis Negotiations Team (CNT)

  • Emergency Management

  • Emergency Response Team (ERT)

  • Patrol

  • Traffic


Cooperation and communication are then sought with other entities within City and County Government, local hospitals, and businesses.
