The Show Low Police Department’s Special Response Team (SRT) was formed in 1998. The team’s formation was in response to rapid population growth in Southern Navajo County and the need for specialized response to hazardous and high risk events.
The team has grown over the years to become a multi-agency team with members from Show Low Police Department, Pinetop-Lakeside Police Department, Navajo County and Snowflake-Taylor PD.
Training & Community Assistance
Members of the SRT team attend extensive training. A few of the courses are basic SWAT school, advanced SWAT school, active shooter, chemical munitions, explosive breaching, and many more.
The Special Response Team regularly assists Navajo County law enforcement agencies with high risk search and arrest warrants, apprehension of known serious offenders, violent felons, and search and rescue operations.
