ALERT (Aligned Law Enforcement Response Team) Tactical and EOD Teams
Why develop regional teams? To acquire critical equipment and enhanced tactical capability that protects us from terrorist acts To establish a coordinated response to catastrophic events that would otherwise overwhelm local resources
What is the role of the law enforcement tactical teams? Be prepared for, respond to and mitigate WMD, terrorist and other catastrophic events Support local resources if/when requested through Mutual Aid
Team Selection Emergency Police Service Areas Team selection occurred with a geographic emphasis Representation of each EPS region facilitates effective dispersal of critical/specialized equipment and capability Most effective statewide coverage Minimal statewide response times

ALERT’s Missions Primary: To deliver enhanced tactical capability through specialized/critical equipment, advanced tactics and a highly coordinated response plan when activated as a statewide asset.
ALERT Activation Possible Activation Protocol Model: –A local agency must contact their respective EPS Area Director requesting assistance. –EPS Director will assess incident and, using the ALERT Activation Matrix Criteria as a guideline, determine if an activation is appropriate. –The guideline provides consistency in the assessment of event circumstances. It is recognized that the Activation Matrix Criteria is only a guideline and that specific event circumstances will be included in the determination whether an ALERT activation may occur.
ALERT’s Role When Activated Collaboration with the local Incident and/or Tactical Commanders in the mitigation of an event through the application of specialized/critical equipment, enhanced tactical capability and highly coordinated response.
ALERT’s Missions Secondary: Make available specialized/critical equipment and/or advanced tactics through mutual aid requests for incidents that do not meet the activation threshold.
Mutual Aid Mutual Aid For Law Enforcement Partners Equipment acquired through Homeland Security grant funding is available to regional law enforcement partners through mutual aid. ALERT agencies shall require memorandums of understanding with law enforcement partners who may request this equipment. ALERT agencies may choose to only allow their own personnel to operate specialized/critical equipment or may require law enforcement partner personnel to be trained on specialized/critical equipment prior to use.
Critical Equipment Available
Equipment Available Now Bearcat Armored Vehicles Tactical Robotics Level III Ballistics Infrared Optics Negotiation Equipment Special Munitions Surveillance Multiple Breaching Capability
Future Critical Equipment Considerations
Future Considerations-Training Bomb Technician Integration Into Tactical Team MACTAC (Multi-Assault Counter-Terrorism Action Capabilities) Explosive & Mechanical Breaching Management of High Risk Entry Volk Self-Aid/Buddy-Aid (SABA) TEMS Train-the-Trainer with Collaboration Focus –ALERT Team Trainers –ALERT Team LE Partner Trainers
ALERT Goal Expand current tactical collaboration to EPS region and beyond –Using ALERT as the foundation, establish a venue for region-wide tactical team planning, training and coordination –Enhance region-wide tactical capability
ALERT Goals ALERT’s regional LE partners participate in the process of identifying future equipment and training priorities. –ALERT Team solicits input from regional tactical team partners on equipment and training considerations –ALERT work groups and subcommittees review, research and prioritize considerations –Acquired equipment is available to LE partners through mutual aid –Training acquisitions have “train-the-trainer” emphasis (Continued on next slide)
