Special Operations Response Team

The Special Operations Response Team was formed in the early 90’s in response to a growing need of the agency to handle specialized critical incidents. While not a common occurrence in Boone, high risk incidents have presented a unique challenge to our small agency. Each team member has received a wide variety of critical incident and response team training. During it’s tenure, the team has successfully resolved several hostage/armed suspect situations and made numerous high risk arrests. The team has participated in various dignitary protection details as notable individuals have visited the high country. The “S.O.R.T.” team provides service to the citizens of Boone and our surrounding area. Representatives of the response team are available for discussion and presentations concerning our mission and purpose.
