Created in 1997, the Unified Tactical Training Team (UT3) was formed to bring together the department's training instructors under a unified command and training Firearm Instructor and student philosophy.

Defensive & Arrest Tactics

The UT3 brings together instructors in defensive and arrest tactics, firearms and officer safety. These individuals are responsible for creating lesson plans and scheduling the training of the department's 60 sworn officers. Officers are expected to train and qualify on a bimonthly basis. The team's trainers attend the latest schools and seminars to stay current and pass new information along to department members.

Law Enforcement Training Officers Association

Our training instructors have received their education from some of the preeminent police training experts in the country today. Many of them maintain memberships in organizations such as the Law Enforcement Training Officers Association.
