Stafford Alert




Captain Benjamin G. Worcester
Division of Special Operations




Special Services provides a variety of programs, the first of these is Juvenile Services.  This unit supplies D.A.R.E. Officers to the schools as well as School Resource Officers to ensure a safe environment within the schools while at the same time creating a link between the youth of the community and law enforcement representatives.

Included in the Special Services function is the Traffic Safety Unit that is charged with the control of traffic movement, enforcement of traffic laws and the reduction of traffic collisions through directed enforcement.  To accomplish this task deputies are equipped with motorcycles and marked and unmarked vehicles.

The Special Problems Unit has been charged with the reaction to and solving of special problems that arise from time to time.  For example a series of thefts from construction sites will initiate action by the unit as will a sudden upsurge in traffic collisions in a specific area of the County.  The unit may work on very serious events, i.e. homicide-assisting investigators, as well as those more annoying incidents such as vandalism.

Homeland Security & Emergency Management prevents, protects against and prepares for all hazards relative to homeland security.  The team works daily to protect the community from ever-present threats of terrorism, providing a higher level of situational awareness and mitigating the chances of having our region be caught unaware.

Finally, the unit that has total responsibility for proactive law enforcement is the Crime Prevention Unit.  The individuals assigned to this task provide a wide range of services aimed at preventing crime, community involvement and community awareness to the trends in criminal activity within the County.


In addition to the units that have organizational stature, the Field Operations Division provides several services that are collateral assignments that support field endeavors; among these Special Operation Teams are: K-9 Field Units, Special Weapons and Tactical support, Dive Team, Marine Patrol, Ground Search and Rescue, Honor Guard, Crisis Negotiation Team, Bike Patrol, Boat Patrol, ATV Patrol UAS Team, Civil Disturbance Team and the Command Bus Team.
