The Negotiation and Entry Team (NET) combines two specialized units to form one uniform team. Trained negotiators are capable to handle various scenarios with their goal of defusing potentially dangerous situations. Their main function is to bring about non-violent endings to critical incidents through effective communication. The Entry Team component is staffed with officers who are trained in special weapons and tactics. The Entry Team is deployed in situations which are either beyond the capabilities of general police personnel or deemed as "high-risk." The Entry Team has also been deployed for search and arrest warrant service and dignitary protection details.
