The Disturbance Response Team consists of highly trained and fully equipped police officers and supervisors. They are prepared to rapidly deploy to situations involving public unrest. The Team has deployed several times during the last few years. These deployments have included assistance to Seattle during the WTO riots, war protests, and The National Governors Conference.
The Team was also instrumental in maintaining the safety and security of everyone during a highly publicized and protested church trial in Bothell. Each Team Member receives specialized training in crowd control techniques and the use of special protective equipment.
