The TACT unit is an elite, highly specialized unit trained to respond to various emergency situations, and is responsible for handling barricade situations, hostage rescues, counter terrorism, and high-risk felony apprehensions. While not subject to regular calls for service like other units, they are called out to handle situations that the Patrol Division cannot resolve. The Tact Unit is staffed by 10 officers from the Patrol Division and Investigation Division and divided into two teams: an entry team and sniper team.

Interested applicants must have a minimum of two years patrol experience and a unanimous vote of approval from the team members. After selection, new recruits must pass physical agility requirements, firearms qualification (90% accuracy with assigned weapons) and attend a 40-hour Basic Tactical Course. Team members are also required to attend 8 hours of in-service training each month.
