All Terrain Unit
The All Terrain Unit (ATU) is a highly mobile unit capable of rapidly deploying to remote areas of the city in any type of weather. This unit gives the department greater flexibility when patrolling our city parks and miles of off-road trails while ensuring public safety. Under the guidance of Sgt. Fairbrother, eight certified officers staff the unit. To be certified, officers must attend a week-long snowmobile school, and two-day ATV school.
The unit operates two Polaris Sportsman ATVs along with two Polaris snowmobiles. These specialized units are invaluable in reaching land areas that are inaccessible to a patrol vehicle and have proven to be a valuable tool in missing person and accident investigations, patrol of inner and outer districts, patrol of parades and special functions, response to accidents on trails, and search and rescue operations.
