SRT (Special Response Team)

SRT Training

Our Team

The Marion police special response team was formed in January of 1997. Chief John Griffin was convinced of the importance of having a specially trained team of police officers who were willing to donate their time and dedicate themselves to hours of intense training for the benefit of the city and its' citizens.

After Chief Griffin gave his approval to create such a team the selection process started. The first six officers were chosen and the training began. At first the officers trained locally with other police departments who had already established teams of this special nature. Now the Marion police departments special response team receives training from some of the top schools in America that specializes in different areas of tactical operations.
