Emergency Response Unit

The Emergency Response Unit (tactical team) was established in 1981 to provide Kingston with a highly trained team of officers to effect the peaceful resolution of high-risk incidents and arrests.


When not engaged in such operations or regular training, Kingston Police tactical officers are on community patrol, making their expertise and individual tactical skills available at all times. The unit is specially deployed as required in a variety of roles, including situations involving hostages, barricaded persons, or weapons.
