Tactical Dispatcher Team (TDT)
Tactical Dispatchers respond directly to the scene of critical incidents such as hostage situations, suicidal subjects, and high risk warrants with the deployment of the SWAT and Crisis Negotiation teams. Tactical Dispatchers are primarily responsible for providing accurate and timely documentation, tracking resource status and handling all communications regarding the event. The TDT is responsible for on scene communications for SWAT or other large scale incidents where Incident Command is being utilized. The TDT can respond anywhere in the region that our SWAT or Negotiation teams are requested.
Team members are "on-call" and called out whenever requested and respond directly to the scene. They set up in the Mobile Command Post coordinating the communication and information requests during the incident from a safe location. Training is on-going, and occurs throughout the year with our local specialized response teams.
