In late 2007 the Police Department merged its Tactical Response Unit (TRU) with the Kane County Sheriff's Office Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team. The TRU had been operating since 1994; it successfully handled such high-profile cases as the Halloween shooting of trick-or-treaters in 2003, as well as high-risk incidents such as barricaded subjects, hostages, and high-risk search warrants.
The next available Public CPR class is October 14, 2021.
