Combined Emergency Response Team

In 2012, Steamboat Springs Police’s Emergency Response Team combined its resources with the Routt County Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team to form the Combined Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.).  The C.E.R.T unit consists of 14 members from both agencies.

The average C.E.R.T member has over a decade of law enforcement experience. The team trains eight hours per month in all areas of special weapons and tactics. It is the mission of the team to protect the lives in the community while utilizing superior police tactical skills, special weapons, and equipment. The backbone of the team is teamwork and a dedication to all police duties.
