Emergency Services Unit

Unit Commander Captain Robert Irwin
Tactical Commander Lieutenant Nicholas Neri III

The Emergency Service Unit operates at the direction of the command staff and responds to emergency and high-risk situations that occur outside the scope of duties of responding patrol and criminal investigation units. ESU members train continually both in-house, with other local, state, federal and military specialized units.

The ESU provides services comparable to the functions of a Special Weapons and Tactics or (SWAT) team. The ESU is trained to respond to high-risk, tactical operations involving barricaded suspects, hostage situations, high-risk warrant service, tactical crowd control and dignitary / VIP protective operations.
