Tactical Unit – Krisis Intervention Team (KIT)
The Krisis Intervention Team (K.I.T.) was first conceived and organized in 1996 after an influx of narcotics crime and clandestine laboratory activity in Grundy County. K.I.T. is a multi-jurisdictional tactical team made up of Trenton Police Officers and Grundy County Deputies. Basic training was conducted in 1997 for the original six team members (see photograph) by the Association

In addition to more training with A.P.T., the Krisis Intervention Team has received training with the National Tactical Officers Association, Fort Leonard Wood, and the Law Enforcement Training Institute. The Krisis Intervention Team maintains a minimum of eight hours monthly in-service training and participates in joint training with other tactical teams.
