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.
