The Tactical Response Unit (TRU) was created in 1993 to provide resources and tactical support where the need is greater than the capabilities offered by the Patrol Division, the Investigative Bureau, and the Special Investigations Unit (SIU).  Members of the TRU have receive the following training: basic SWAT, advanced SWAT, hostage rescue, tactical pistol and carbine, less lethal munitions and chemical munitions.  Select members have received additional training as marksman/observers.

By maintaining our own tactical response unit, the City of Westland ensures that any circumstance requiring an advanced response receives immediate attention.
