Multiple Enforcement Team

The Multiple Enforcement Team (MET) is supervised by a Sergeant. MET is a proactive group of officers whose responsibilities include monitoring and suppressing gang activity, addressing emerging crime patterns and series, and conducting investigations on gang-related crimes.  MET deals directly with Parole and Probation and is also responsible for graffiti issues.

The MET team is also comprised of Police and Corrections Team. An MET Officer is assigned as liaison to a team consisting of Parole Officers and one Probation Officer. The Team is responsible for monitoring parolee’s compliance and terms of parole and PRCS and Supervised Released Program.

Street Enforcement Team

The Street Enforcement Team (SET) is supervised by a sergeant. This unit addresses the issues of sales, distribution and use of illegal drugs.

Crises Negotiations Team

The Crisis Negotiations Team responds to incidents that involve barricaded and/or suicidal subjects. Using highly skilled and trained negotiators, the team strives to resolve incidents as peacefully as possible, thereby reducing the risk of injury or loss of life.

K-9 Unit

In December 2008, the Redlands Police Department began its drug-sniffing K-9 program.

Redlands Police officers frequently call on the department canine and also make him available to other local and federal agencies. The K-9 program also provides regular service to local schools through a contract with the Redlands Unified School District.

Since 2008, the ongoing training, medical costs, equipment and lodging for the department’s canines have been supported entirely by private donations with no cost to the City’s General Fund.

The Redlands Police Department accepts direct donations to the K-9 program. Contact your tax professional to determine if your donation is tax deductible. Donations may be made out to the Redlands Police Community Foundation (please specify Police Canine Fund).
