Emergency Response Team (E.R.T.)

ERT at the DNC in 2008

The Emergency Response Team (ERT) is made up of 120 officers/agents, 12 sergeants, 4 lieutenants, and 1 captain who all take on extra responsibilities in addition to their normal duties.

ERT members are specially trained in a variety of skills to handle events that exceed the normal capacity of the Department, such as crowd control in riots or large protests, weapons of mass destruction response, and searching for people or evidence in a large crime scene.

The Emergency Response Team participated in operations for the Democratic National Convention held in Denver in August of 2008. ERT has helped with major crimes investigations by looking for weapons, shell casings and other evidence. They have assisted in canvassing areas looking for lost children. They helped staff the evacuation center in Aurora during the Hurricane Katrina rescue operations in August, 2006. They have performed crowd control duties during large rallies in the city of Aurora and other locations in the state.
