Special Projects Investigations Detection Enforcement & Response Unit (S.P.I.D.E.R.)

S.P.I.D.E.R. is a proactive community oriented investigative unit consisting of both  uniformed deputies and undercover detectives. They are deployed into communities based on intelligence driven data to target specific types of criminal activity.  In addition to the variety of law enforcement functions, including   covert surveillance and  overt directed patrol the unit engages the community by going door to door speaking to the residence.  The detectives assigned to S.P.I.D.E.R. maintain a caseload focused on specific targets identified through intelligence, investigations, or areas of interest. The uniformed deputies assigned to the unit are proficient in high risk traffic stops and tactical operations.  All members assigned to the S.P.I.D.E.R. Unit receive specialized training in the principles of community oriented policing and intelligence led policing prior to their initial deployment.
