Sheriff's Emergency Response Team (S.E.R.T)

 The Sheriff's Office along with the Lexington City Police provide a part-time tactical team. Having a properly trained and equipped tactical team reduces the time it takes to respond to a situation and allows for officers on the roads with higher skill sets. The team trains monthly on different scenarios that may arise ensuring properly trained personnel are ready to respond to an emergency at a moment's notice.
