SWAT and CNT teams

The Marysville Police Department maintains a SWAT team (Special Weapons and Tactics) and CNT (Crisis Negotiation Team). These teams are made up of highly trained Marysville police officers who apply for these assignments as an additional duty to their primary assignment.

Their duty is to respond to high-risk, critical incidents that require more resources, equipment, special tactics, coordination and time than regular patrol officers may have. Examples of incidents the SWAT team and CNT may respond to are:
  • Barricaded subjects
  • Hostage situations
  • High-risk search warrants
  • High-risk, preplanned vehicle stops
  • Special surveillance
  • Dignitary protection
  • Any unusual occurrence that calls for an extraordinary police response.

The SWAT team and CNT mission is to provide the citizens of Marysville with a highly trained team of officers who can apply the appropriate tactics and equipment to safely and professionally address a variety of high-risk situations.
