Tactical Response Unit

Franklin Police Tactical Response Unit (TRU)Tactical Response Unit (TRU) - The TRU is a dynamic, quick-response unit comprised of selected volunteer members who are selected by virtue of their enthusiasm, law enforcement expertise, physical ability, and superior judgement in exigent situations.  

The TRU is specifically trained and appropriately equipped to deal with high risk entry, barricade and unusual arrest situations, normally involved with the execution of a judicial officer’s order.  

The TRU is used when circumstances exist that would establish a reasonable belief that there is a potential for violence sufficiently greater than that which would face police officers during normal and lawful execution of duty.
