The Training Unit falls under the Operations Division, but is staffed by personnel from both the Operations Division and Support Services Division. The Training Unit's primary responsibility is to ensure that department personnel receive up to date and relevant training in a variety of areas including: crisis intervention, de-escalation, defensive tactics, firearms and tactics, case law, family violence, and tactical medical training, to name a few. Many of the training topics given are done through reality based training. This ensures that officers and staff have the cognitive skills and tactical application of those skills to perform at the highest levels.
