Each ESU officer is certified in advance crowd control training. Additionally, each officer on the team has been trained by the Department of Homeland Security in providing citizen support during terrorists events (such as an incident involving Weapons of Mass Destruction). The ESU team has specialized training, equipment, and tactics to support large crowds during times of crisis.
