Emergency Services Team

The Emergency Services Team is a group of officers trained in special weapons and tactics. The team consists of three elements: tactical, marksmen/observers, and negotiators. The team responds when requested to assist with medium to high-risk search warrants, barricaded subjects with a weapon, hostage situations, suicidal subjects, and any other occasion where the training and skills of the officers can be utilized to assist in resolving the incident. EST tactical and marksmen officers are required to maintain a level of physical fitness and shooting skills which allow them to complete these assignments.

Mobile Precinct Station

The Davenport Police Department has a useful tool in its crime fighting arsenal, the Mobile Precinct Station (MPS). The Mobile Precinct is an extension of the police department and can be placed almost anywhere in the city. It has multiple uses, such as a mobile police substation, major incident command center, crime scene investigation mobile lab or public relations.

The goal of the Mobile Precinct is to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. The MPS is used to support our Community Impact Team Officers, Good Neighbor Project neighborhoods and other areas that need enhanced law enforcement services. We also coordinate our efforts with other community services. These services include the city housing department, city environmental, city legal and area mediation services.

The Mobile Precinct is a 26' self contained unit. With an onboard generator, it can be deployed in remote areas or used on an onsite fixed outlet. The MPS is used in the community year round.
