The highly trained Cass County Sheriff's Office Tactical Response Team is used
in situations involving hostage taking, armed barricaded subjects, snipers or other situations
that present a high degree of danger to life. TAC team members are specially trained
in the use of a variety of weapons, anti-sniper tactics, hostage rescues, executive protection and
capturing barricaded suspects. To become a member, deputies must pass a rigorous physical fitness
test, and have thorough knowledge of department policies and procedures.
The TAC Team trains constantly and members cross-train in all assignments to enhance the team's effectiveness.
