Oakland County Tactical Training Consortium, also known as
OakTac, was established in 2009 to prepare Oakland County in the event of a
major incident requiring a mutual-agency response. OakTac law enforcement
consortium uniformly trains and exercises using shared resources to strengthen
overall preparedness capabilities. With the help of Urban Area Security
Initiative (UASI) grants, OakTac has been able to secure funding for training,
exercises, equipment, supplies, and other resources.
There were 6 agencies who initially formed this consortium
and membership has now grown to 40 agencies.
97% of the population within Oakland County is protected by
member agencies. Areas that are not yet covered fall within the jurisdiction of
Michigan State Police.
OakTac is organized into two main disciplines:
1. Mobile Field Force - The Mobile Field Force (MFF)
mitigate incidents involving civil disorder.
2. Active Assailant Response - Situations involving violence
are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of
law enforcement is required to stop the violence and facilitate medical
treatment and evacuation of victims.
