Specialized Units

The Alliance Police Department Consists of numerous "specialized units" that are deployed in special situations.

The Special Response Team is used primarily when the public or officers are faced with a deadly threat.  They are used commonly in high-risk drug raids, barricaded subject calls, school shootings and for homeland security threats.

The Canine Unit is used for several different reasons.  The most common uses for the canine is locating drugs and tracking persons.  Both of the police department's police canines are trained as both "patrol" and "drug" dogs.

The Crisis Hostage Negotiation Team (CHNT) is a team of officers that conduct negotiations for the department with possible hostage takers or violent subjects so that a peaceful resolution to conflict can be achieved.
