The Allen County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team will provide assistance to all divisions as required and to other agencies as requested. The team’s primary focus is to assist in high risk situations where the use of a highly trained and specially equipped group of officers is appropriate.
The team is supplemented by medics, negotiators, detectives, and Allen County Reserve perimeter team members as necessary.
The team will operate independently of other agencies/divisions in situations such as search warrant execution. In other situations the team may be involved in incidents appropriate to the use of the Incident Command System and may come under the general direction of a unified command.
