Defensive Tactics Team

Solano County Sheriff's Office

The Solano County Sheriff's Office Defensive Tactics Team came to fruition in 1997. The vision for the team was to provide both weaponless defensive tactics as well as impact weapons training to the members of the Sheriff's Office. The Defensive Tactics Team (DT) is comprised of both Correctional Officers and Deputy Sheriff's. The Defensive Tactics team is responsible for meeting Standards and Training in Corrections (STC) and Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) guidelines. The Defensive Tactics Team has provided hundreds of hours of instruction in weaponless defense and impact weapons as well as instruction on less lethal weapons including the PepperBall and TASER. In addition to providing training to the men and women of the Solano County Sheriff's Office the Defensive Tactics Team also provides training to other local law enforcement agencies. Members of the team are tasked with developing training based on the ever changing needs and trends in law enforcement.
