In Early 2014, the Euclid Police SWAT team became integrated in the Eastern Departments Group Enforcement regional S.W.A.T. team. This regional team is a team of specially trained and assembled police officers from member jurisdiction cities, which can be requested for deployment to critical incidents where special weapons, tactics and communications are needed.
The purpose and intent of EDGE S.W.A.T. is to serve as a specialized, flexible and mobile team, activated to assist member jurisdiction departments in addressing and resolving critical incidents outside of normal police operations. Member departments include Beachwood Police Department, Euclid Police Department, Shaker Hts. Police Department, South Euclid Police Department, and University Hts. Police Department.
