Immediate Response Unit

The Immediate Response Unit (IRU), also know as a SWAT Team, is a paramilitary unit consisting of highly trained deputies that tackle situations beyond the capability of conventional law enforcement officers. The IRU team is called in when an incident presents significant risk to law enforcement officers or the public. IRU is an elite unit within our Sheriff's Office and is used for exceptional situations that require specialized weapons and tactics.
