Special Emergency Response Team

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center houses a dedicated team, known as the Special Emergency Response Team (SERT), responsible for riot control, centralized cell extractions, drug/weapon interdiction, and specialized operations within the facility. Comprising well-trained individuals, SERT members can be swiftly called to conduct their specialized operations. Acknowledged by jail staff for their unique training and functions, SERT has successfully confiscated various weapons, drugs, and contraband, contributing to the safety and security of both the facility and its occupants.
