S.E.R.T. is a specially trained unit of Deputy Jailers here at the Warren County Regional Jail. All members apply when there is a posted opening. The application process consists of physical fitness exams, orientation, exposure to OC pepper spray and officer survival drill, and an oral board examination. The final selections are made by the Jailer.
S.E.R.T. Deputies must attend mandatory training once a month which is held on the second Tuesday at 3 p.m. Training can be held more often if it is necessary or has been requested.
S.E.R.T. is prepared to handle situations that regular line staff cannot. This includes but is not limited to: controlling unruly inmates, cell extractions, riots, hostage situations, escapes, and specialized non-lethal, less than lethal, and lethal force options utilizing the use of force continuum. It is the goal of S.E.R.T. to use the minimum amount of force necessary to achieve the desired objective.
