 Police Interdiction Team (PIT)


The Police Interdiction Team (PIT) was formed in March 2011 to combat street crimes such as gang, drug and violent criminal offenses in high crime areas (hot spots) within the City of Salisbury. The eight member team is comprised of a lead Sergeant, one team leader and six officers under the overall direction of the department's Captain of Operations.

The team trains regularly in a variety of tactics, specific to the unique situations they may encounter while in the field, including intensive martial arts training on a weekly basis.
