Special Response Team

The team typically responds to high risk searches, hostage/barricade situations, high risk arrest warrant services, or any situations which the threat level deems a SWAT response. 

Griffin PD is one of the few departments which has almost 25% of its officers trained as SWAT operators. This means that the Department can respond to a crisis situation immediately.

Team member training includes: hostage rescue, deployment of less than lethal force, tactical submachine, tactical rifle, and countersniper marksmanship.

The SRT has responded to over 239 tactical operations (high risk search warrants, arrest warrants, missing children, special events) and 7 Hostage/Barricade situations since its creation in April of 2006.
