Special Response Teams (SRT) are highly trained and specialized police
personnel deployed to emergencies and other special operations. In
certain situations, the public safety would be better served through the joint
deployment of each department's team, while eliminating an unnecessary duplication services and cost.
proposed agreement provides for the mutual participation of both the City of Center Line and Warren
Police Departments, as needed, in special response team operations. The
agreement does not create a binding obligation upon either police department to
provide its team to the other department. The document is intended
to authorize the police departments to work cooperatively, as appropriate and
sets the terms applicable to the mutual utilization of the special response
Center Line will fully supply their officers with weapons, uniforms etc.
This agreement represents the first public safety related cooperative agreement between
the City of Center Line and the City of Warren, and is limited to
peripheral services, not affecting primary public safety operations for either community.

The City of Warren entered into an Intergovernmental Metro Macomb Swat Mutual Aid Agreement with Center Line and 5 other communities (Clinton Township, Eastpointe, Roseville, St. Clair Shores, Sterling Heights). The communities entered into this agreement to create a regional effort to assist one another in the case of specialized incidents when special response team equipment or special response team personnel are needed by a community.
