The Emergency Response Team (ERT) is a designated law enforcement team, whose members are recruited, selected, trained, equipped and assigned to resolve critical incidents involving a threat to public safety which would otherwise exceed the capabilities of traditional law enforcement first responders and/or investigative units.
ERT officers are responsible for rapid deployment to contain, control, and neutralize any threat to the safety and welfare of the DoD community or property when incidents such as sabotage attempts, armed intrusion, hostage taking, sniper or terrorist attacks, weapons of mass destruction or civil disobedience situations, or chemical accidents occur. They provide emergency response to senior DoD officials.
They also provide security and protection of U.S. government officials and other high-ranking foreign diplomats and control crowds for various events, including National Security Special Events, Presidential Inaugurations, annual marathons, protests, and ceremonies at the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial.
