Emergency Response Team

RCMP Emergency Response Team (ERT) police officers use tactics, specialized weapons and equipment to resolve high-risk situations. The dynamic nature of these incidents requires an integrated response.

ERT duties include:

  • Resolving armed and barricaded persons incidents
  • Air and marine interventions
  • High-risk searches and arrests
  • Protective policing
