Special Teams

MPD Teams
The Missoula Police Department (MPD) enjoys the ability to provide four special teams to supplement first responders on issues requiring additional training and equipment. Those teams are:
  • Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) - Used for high-risk warrant service, barricaded subject response, hostage incident, dignitary protection, and civil disturbances
  • Tactical Negotiations Team (TNT) - Deployed with SWAT for hostage incident and barricaded subject response
  • Civil Disturbance Unit (CDU) - Responds to civil disturbances for any degree ranging from passive resistance to riotous crowds
  • Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) - Responds to bomb threats and bomb emergencies to assist any other special team as deemed appropriate
Team Members and Compensation
All of these teams are part-time teams and the officers choose to be a part of the teams in addition to their normal full-time assignments. All members receive additional pay for being on a special team.
