- Crisis Response Unit (CRU)
Rocklin’s Crisis Response Unit (CRU) is comprised of two specialized teams: the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) and the Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT). This unit provides specialized support in handling critical field operations where intense negotiations and/or special tactical deployment methods beyond the capacity of field officers appear to be necessary.
Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT)
A SWAT team is specifically trained and equipped to work as a coordinated team to resolve critical incidents that are so hazardous, complex, or unusual that they may exceed the capabilities of first responders or investigative units including, but not limited to, hostage taking, barricaded suspects, snipers, terrorist acts and other high-risk incidents.
Crisis Negotiation Team (CINT)
The Crisis Negotiation Team provides skilled verbal communicators to deescalate and effect surrender in critical situations where suspects have taken hostages, barricaded themselves, or have suicidal tendencies.
Efforts each of you make to be vigilant, such as reporting suspicious items or activities to authorities, do make a difference. Every citizen, using their common sense and their eyes and ears can support our efforts to keep Rocklin safe.
In the event of an emergency, please report suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1 or (916) 625-5400 for non-emergencies.
