The Tiffin Police Department would like you to understand the functions of the SRT/CNT Team.

SRT is an acronym for Special Response Team. The team consists of specially trained officers from other sections within the police department. They respond to seven main categories of calls:  

  • Assist Other Jurisdictions
  • Barricaded subjects - Armed subject(s) barricaded against arrest
  • Heavy Arrest - Arrest of multiple armed felons in a fortified location
  • High Risk Drug Search Warrants
  • Hostage Situations
  • Sniper
  • Special Circumstances (Riot suppression, etc.)

The Tiffin Police Department SRT Team was formed in the fall of 1990 and formally incorporated into department functions in January 1991. The team handles high risk calls that are not otherwise handled by patrol.

The CNT Team is separate from the SRT Team but works closely with them.

CNT is an acronym for Crisis Negotiation Team and was formed in 1994. The team is made up of officers specially trained in the area of negotiations and have attended basic and advanced hostage negotiation courses. The CNT works closely with the SRT Team and are called out to some SRT calls. The CNT deals with the following categories of calls:

  • Barricaded Criminal Suspects
  • Barricaded Suicidal Subjects
  • Hostage Situations
  • Other incidents which require trained negotiators

When a line supervisor requests the SRT or CNT Team they are paged out and respond to the situation at hand. SRT and CNT are support units for the Patrol Division.
