Special Response Team.

The New Castle Police Department’s Special Response Team (SRT) is made up of specially trained New Castle Police Officers.  SRT officers are trained to utilize special weapons and tactics.  The presence of a highly trained, tactical unit has been shown to substantially reduce the risk of injury or loss of life to citizens, police officers and suspects.  It is the mission of the New Castle Police SRT to support the New Castle Police Department and any other requesting law enforcement agency with a tactical response to critical incidents such as hostage situations, barricaded subjects, high risk warrant service and apprehensions.
