Learn about the County's Crisis Negotiation Unit
The Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office has several units that respond to incidents and cover events that require specialized training, equipment, manpower and resources.
Specialized units include the bomb squad, crisis negotiation unit, K-9 unit, motorcycle unit, Special Response Team (SRT) and the Special Vehicle Response Team (SVR).
The deputies on each of these specialized units are assigned primarily to a full-time position such as the patrol division, detention division, criminal investigations division, etc. and rotate with that division's schedule. The deputies are on call for the specialized unit and are called out or scheduled as needed for special events or incidents.
The deputies assigned to the specialized units go through an extensive selection process. Once selected, the officers then undergo vigorous, specialized training with the NC Justice Academy to be prepared for high-risk situations.
