Special Response Team
|The Special Response Team (SRT) falls under the direction of the Patrol Division of the Kentwood Police Department. It is a part-time team comprised of ten officers, three sergeants, and one captain currently assigned to it. The assignment to the Special Response Team is voluntary for all members and adds additional responsibility to everyone’s normal duties. The team is utilized during critical incidents and during the execution of high-risk search warrants. Each time the team is utilized it is due to an increase of violence or potential of danger above what is normal in this line of work. Team members receive additional monthly training and utilize specialized equipment. These members train above what is expected of other officers to bring high stress and dangerous situations to a resolution in the safest possible way.
