For Immediate Release


The Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team (S.E.R.T) just returned from a five day intense Special Weapons and Tactics certification course conducted in South Carolina conducted by the Government Training Institute.  The officers received specialized training in High Risk Warrant Services, Vehicle Assaults, Ballistic and Mechanical Breaching, and tactical Shooting techniques.  The mission of the Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team is to provide requesting agencies with a highly trained and dedicated field force available on short notice for:  lost person searches, civil disturbances, special event crowd management, site security, detention center disturbances or other situations where a cohesive and disciplined unit of law enforcement officers is critical to the success of the mission.  The Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Office feels that the introduction of this skilled team to the department will add an additional element of protection and service to the community.
