Special Response Team

The City of Ashland Police Division is proud to be the home base of Ashland Counties Special Response Team. The staff is a part-time tactical team comprised of Law Enforcement Officers and Paramedics from the Ashland Police Division, Ashland County Sheriff's Office, Loudonville Police Department and the Mifflin Fire Department. This group of highly trained officers and paramedics are set to respond and contain threats posed to the residents of Ashland County that may be outside the resources of the average patrol element.  

Many of the situations are life threatening and may include serving dangerous search or arrest warrants, conducting surveillance, diffusing situations involving armed or emotionally disturbed subjects and hostage scenarios. Many of these situations involve either children of drug addicts or the elderly.
