Emergency Services Unit (ESU)




The Fairfield Police Department recognizes that the presence of a trained, skilled Emergency Services Unit (ESU) has been shown to reduce the risk of injury or loss of life to citizens, police officers, and suspects. Recognizing that a well-managed “team’ response to critical incidents usually results in successful resolution of critical incidents; it is our intent to provide a trained and skilled Emergency Services Unit as a resource for the handling of Critical Incidents.

The Fairfield Police Department Emergency Service Unit consists of a Tactical Team, Crisis Negotiation Team and Sniper Team, all of which receive specialized training in responding to critical incidents.
