WI ALERT Teams and TEMS PowerPoint

(Aligned Law Enforcement Response Team)
Tactical and EOD Teams
Why develop regional teams?
To acquire critical equipment and enhanced tactical
capability that protects us from terrorist acts
To establish a
coordinated response
to catastrophic
events that would
otherwise overwhelm
local resources
What is the role of the law enforcement
tactical teams?
Support local resources
if/when requested
through Mutual Aid
Be prepared for, respond to
and mitigate WMD, terrorist
and other catastrophic events
Team Selection

ALERT’s Missions
• Primary:
To deliver enhanced tactical capability through specialized/critical
equipment, advanced tactics and a highly coordinated response
plan when activated as a statewide asset.
ALERT Activation
• Possible Activation Protocol Model:
– A local agency must contact their respective EPS Area Director
requesting assistance.
– EPS Director will assess incident and, using the ALERT
Activation Matrix Criteria as a guideline, determine if an
activation is appropriate.
– The guideline provides consistency in the assessment of event
circumstances. It is recognized that the Activation Matrix Criteria
is only a guideline and that specific event circumstances will be
included in the determination whether an ALERT activation may
ALERT’s Role When Activated
• Collaboration with the local Incident and/or
Tactical Commanders in the mitigation of an
event through the application of
specialized/critical equipment, enhanced tactical
capability and highly coordinated response.
ALERT’s Missions
Make available specialized/critical equipment and/or
advanced tactics through mutual aid requests for
incidents that do not meet the activation threshold.
Mutual Aid
• Mutual Aid For Law Enforcement Partners
Equipment acquired through Homeland Security grant funding is
available to regional law enforcement partners through mutual aid.
ALERT agencies shall require memorandums of understanding
with law enforcement partners who may request this equipment.
ALERT agencies may choose to only allow their own personnel to
operate specialized/critical equipment or may require law
enforcement partner personnel to be trained on specialized/critical
equipment prior to use.

prioritize considerations
– Acquired equipment is available to LE partners through mutual
