SOU is prepared at any time to deploy personnel and equipment for tactical response, to support warrant service, conduct low visibility counter-surveillance, investigations, and provide enhanced support for special events.

SOU also conduct training on railroad-specific tactical response and procedures for fellow Amtrak Police Department members and our external law enforcement partner agencies.
