The Ottawa County Sheriffs Office Special Response Team consists of Sheriffs Deputies and other law enforcement officers within the county who assist in high-risk situations, including hostage negotiations, barricaded individuals or the execution of felony search or arrest warrants. The team also has three trained crisis negotiators.

This unit trains on a continuing basis and has assisted the Detective Division, the Ottawa County Drug Task Force and various law enforcement agencies on the state and local level within the county to a high performance level. In today’s society, this is a much-needed unit for the security and safety of our citizens and our officers.
