In my time in LE Ive been through training with guys from a tri-county narcotics unit and guys from a Combined Area Response Team (CART) that encompasses several south houston metropolitan police agencies that make up a multi jurisdictional SRT unit. 


Curious if any of you officers, deputies, or agents have worked in that sort of environment, at any level, before....how you liked it, what the politics of it was like, and if you would request for it again.

Our MN Gang Strike Force is going through the wringer right now because of politics. They named a new boss after the old one (very much missed) retired, and within weeks he was screwing his own guys. I expect the gang war around here to blow up.

I figured that was the issue with alot of them, multi-agency politics.


MY goal is the terrorism taskforce one of these days

Was on a multi-juristictional team, consisting of officers from three seperate agencies. No complaints in regards to the politics, since all three departments were on the same page. The only gripe I had, was budgetary. My host agency never would dole out enough funding to match the other two. The guys from my agency were always behind on ammo, and other items that required financial output.


We always managed to muttle through...

The Northern Illinois Police Alarm System (NIPAS) operates with over 94 different Agencies.  They work together for everything from SWAT operations, natural disasters, to Mobile Field Force.

Every SWAT team in the Chicagoland area owes a lot to to the NIPAS EST team (especially Big Ed Mohn of the Libertyville PD).  Every team, including Chicago PD's newly formed SWAT team, is in their debt for the training and insight they have given.  As a matter of fact for all teams throughout the State of Illinois.

I spent many years in a mutli jurisdictional task force. A mixture of Local and Federal agencies. One of the funnest and more productive units I have ever had the pleasure to be a part of.  I would like to go back as a supervisor when the position opens back up.  It was always good. Some times were better than others depending on who the commander in charge of the unit was. There were always minor to major fallouts over the years between agencies but nothing that hampered the mission too much. All in all my favorite assignment in LE.

Thats what Im looking for right there....a unit mixed of local, county, state, and federal personnel....would be great to work with different officers, deputies, and agents for a common focus. That is definately a career goal of mine.

I does help out.  Not only are Agencies teaming up for multi-jurisdictional SWAT units, but are doing the same for everything else.  Major crime units, major crash investigation units, Narcotic units, etc.  It's nice to have the numerous manpower resourses along with the extra knowledge given from other PDs. 


A smaller Dept. had a double homicide recently and they were able to use 40 Detectives and Evidence Techs from other Towns to assist in catching the bad guys/gals.  Beats the old way of doing business.

Aside from how fun the work was it opened up alot of training  and networking opportunities. I got training that never would have been available otherwise. I was able to learn from every agency involved. I still have resources available that I never even knew existed prior to being assigned to them. It also never hurts being able to pick up a phone and be in contact with a person you really know at every level Local, State and Federal.

Right, first and foremost its about exposure...exposure to new SOPs, new rules, new resources.  One thing we all have to remember, this is our careers. And to have a federal task force on my resume, that is definately a beautiful thing.
