Paris Police Department F.A.S.T. Team
The Felony, Arrest, Search and Tactical Team is first and foremost a life-saving organization. Using special tactics and equipment the F.A.S.T. Team responds to high risk incidents so as to minimize the likelihood of injury to innocent people, police officers and suspects.
The F.A.S.T. Team was formed in 2013. The Team currently has 12 members from the Paris Police Department. It works closely with the Hostage/Crisis Negotiation Team and the K-9 Unit. It responds to the following situations: armed or barricaded suspects, hostage situations, high risk warrant service, dignitary protection or any other mission designated by the Chief of Police.
