The Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) members are specialists trained to resolve high-risk situations such as hostage taking, barricade incidents, dignitary protection and bomb threats.

Members of the Crime Scene Unit are trained to respond to certain scenes in which a crime has happened, such as a burglary, robbery and thefts. These officers take pictures, lift fingerprints and secure evidence. The officers assist the Criminal Investigations Division in violent crime scenes for evidence processing.

The Crisis Intervention Team is made up of officers who have volunteered to receive specialized training in the area of mental illness. This training enables the members of Crisis Intervention Team to more effectively understand and assist those affected by mental illness. Members of the Crisis Intervention Team respond to any call involving a person with a diagnosed mental illness, who is off their medication, an individual who is suicidal, depressed, or exhibit symptoms of mental illness, or any call where information on mental illness is requested. The banner grasped by the eagle's beak bears the Crisis Intervention Team motto "Auxilium Per Scientia" which translated states "Assistance Through Understanding". The eagle's head is turned toward its talon holding a laurel branch; signifying the team's desire for a peaceful resolution.

The K-9 Unit is comprised a highly trained narcotic sniffing dog and his specialist handlers. Officer Snyder and his partner, Yahn, greatly enhance the number of narcotic arrests in Collierville by performing drug interdiction on the major highways and assisting other patrol officers as well as the Criminal Investigation Division.
