The Response, Entry, Arrest and Control Team (R.E.A.C.T.) of the Audrain County Sheriff's Office was formed in 1997 largely in part to the increase in violent crimes and drug trafficking. R.E.A.C.T. consists of deputies who are trained in operational tactics and high risk entry techniques.

The mission of the team is to bring high risk, critical incidents to a close with the least amount of risk to the officers and citizens of Audrain County. Situations that can be handled by R.E.A.C.T. include: armed subjects, barricaded subjects, hostage situations, and the service of any search or arrest warrant where there is a high likelihood of violence.

R.E.A.C.T. trains monthly, the training consists of weapons handling, improving marksmanship skills, and tactical maneuvers. R.E.A.C.T. trains primarily at the Audrain County Sheriff's Office range which features an 80 yard pistol range and a 100 yard rifle range. This range utilizes paper targets as well as knock down and moving targets.

R.E.A.C.T. has an open door policy regarding training with outside agencies and we welcome the opportunity to train with other teams. Telephone Team Leader Captain James Shrader or Major Don Uhey at 573-473-5800.
