City considering joining Warren County Tactical Response Unit
Monroe took the first step toward joining a Warren County tactical response team.
Brock said a resolution that saw an approved first reading last week would expand on the current law enforcement agreement to establish a county Tactical Response Unit as a task force under Ohio law, and better define the agreement between the political subdivisions. He said it’s similar to the city’s agreement with the Warren County Drug Task Force. Monroe has been a part of the West Chester Tactical Response Unit since 2015.
