The Special Response Team (SRT) consists of two units joined together for one goal, which is the preservation of life.
The SRT team participates in specialized training that allows them to respond anywhere in Ashland to assist with all types of tactical emergencies.
SRT operators also provide up-to-date and professional training for other members of our department. The Hostage Negotiation Team (HNT), consists of officers who are highly skilled and trained in the art of critical event negotiations.
Negotiators are continually honing their skills by attending numerous courses and participating in scenario training. SRT and HNT respond to all critical events as one unit and come together throughout the year for joint training.
