To select, staff, equip, train, and prepare the team to resolve incidents involving a threat to public safety which would otherwise exceed the capabilities of traditional law enforcement first responders and investigative units. We work with other divisions and agencies to succeed in the law enforcement mission. For each operation a planning process and after-action performance evaluation shall be performed to make adjustments as necessary to insure overall team competency.

Vision for the Future
