Major Incident Response Team (M.I.R.T.)
Major Incident Response Team
The Major Incident Response Team was formed in 1983 as a specialized operational intervention unit, which can be activated to resolve non-routine police problems.

The unit requires strict discipline, physical excellence, a high degree of mental fitness, and the ability to excel in the assigned expertise.

Situations that may require the activation of the M.I.R.T. team:
  • Armed suicidal persons
  • Barricaded persons
  • Civil disturbance
  • Dignitary protection
  • Hostage situations
  • Sniper situations
  • Terrorist incidents
  • Warrant service on felony arrests involving the possible use of a weapon
  • Any other incident deemed necessary by the chief of police or other designee
