Emergency Response Team

The Goldsboro Police Department has at its disposal an Emergency Response Team commanded by the Major of Support Services. This team was first formed to respond to dangerous high-risk incidents that required tactical operation skills more advanced than a police officer receives in basic training.

This advanced training includes everything from sniper/counter-sniper operations to hand-to-hand combat techniques. Each team member must be qualified in multiple weapons, from handguns to assault rifles.

The Goldsboro Police Department Emergency Response Team has a record of dedication and professionalism toward the safety and protection of the citizens of Goldsboro. The Emergency Response Team trains regularly, including advanced training schools the officers attend to keep their skills well honed.
