Special Response Team

The mission of Wayne County Sheriff’s Special Response Team (SRT) is to support the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies in Wayne County with a tactical response to critical incidents and high-risk operations in a manner that reduces the chance of violence, injury or death.
 
The SRT is made up of officers, selected from within the agency, and Tactical Emergency Medical Support (TEMS) personnel who are responsible for responding to incidents which are beyond the capabilities of traditional law enforcement, using specialized equipment, weapons and tactics.
 
The SRT conducts continual training to handle the most difficult and potentially dangerous situations, such as hostage scenarios, barricaded gunmen, high-risk drug house search warrants, dynamic entry and potential Homeland Security issues. 
 
In addition, SRT supports ongoing regional efforts in Maritime Security in the Port of Detroit and International Waterways, Weapons of Mass Destruction and National Level Special Events.
