The Special Operations Unit offers specialized enforcement services to the community through the Special Enforcement Section, Special Problems Section, Special Investigations Section, Special Weapons Team, and Crisis Negotiation Team. The Special Enforcement Section is utilized for short-term, high priority assignments such as street narcotic enforcement, Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) violations, warrant service, suppression of identified crime patterns, and liaison with State Parole and County Probation. The Special Problems Section is primarily responsible for gang suppression and graffiti investigations. They also act as liaison to the City's four Neighborhood Councils and handle designated problem-oriented policing. The Special Investigations Section is responsible for investigating vice and narcotic cases.
The Criminal Intelligence Section is responsible for the proactive collection, analysis and dissemination of criminal intelligence on the activities of organized crime groups, public disorder groups, terrorist groups, and officials involved in public corruption. The result of this effort provides the Chief of Police with the knowledge and information necessary to make informed judgments and take appropriate action to effectively counter and control criminal activity within the City.
