Shelby Police Department
Special Response Team
The Shelby Police Department Special Response Team is a voluntary tactical unit within our agency that responds to critical incidents in support of Patrol and Investigative operations.
The purpose of the team is to respond to incidents that require extra resources, equipment, and tactical training that cannot be handled through a traditional police response. Some of these incidents include the service of high-risk search warrants, apprehension of wanted suspects, surveillance, barricaded and suicidal subject calls and any other operations or incidents that would benefit from the training and equipment of the team.
The Special Response Team is a part-time team. Officers on the team have other primary assignments. Members on the team receive monthly specialized training, and are on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
