The primary role of the Uniform Division is one of pro-active patrol for crime prevention.

They are often called upon to search for suspects who have fled on foot from crime scenes as well as to perform searches of vehicles and homes where suspected controlled substances may be hidden. They are also utilized to locate small children or the impaired elderly who have wandered away from their residences.

The Emergency Response Team (ERT) consists of the Team Commander, Entry Team Leader & Team members, Medic, Sniper, and Negotiators.
