SWAT / Emergency Response Team

This highly trained and practiced unit is designed for tactical operations. The members of this squad utilize specialized weapons and equipment to complete tactical assignments such as barricaded suspects or the execution of felony drug warrants. The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office recently acquired a new "swat truck" and Mobile Command center. The addition of these special vehicles will allow the SWAT team even greater efficiency. Annually, the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office offers basic and advanced SWAT training in a week long school to officers from other departments.
