In 1985 the Waupaca County Sheriff's Office, in cooperation with all Law Enforcement agencies within the County formed the first Tactical Team in Waupaca County history. The team was named: the Waupaca County Emergency Response Unit (ERU).
The team is multi-jurisdictional and comprised of members from the Sheriff's Department and officers from various agencies within Waupaca County.
All members are FBI trained and are members of the Wisconsin Association of SWAT personnel, which is the oldest organization in the nation.
We possess state of the art equipment including a Command Post, Armored Vehicle, Equipment Vehicle, various entry tools and weapon delivery systems.The primary goal of this team is to contain, control and resolve situations as effectively and efficiently as possible while protecting life and minimizing the risk of injuries to all persons involved.
