Major Incident Response Team (MIRT)


The Major Incident Response Team, (referred to as MIRT) is a specialized unit of highly trained officers  who provide support  to police departments tasked with responding to emergencies, especially large scale events, with personnel and logistical support. Newtown Township has six trained officers who participate in specialized training throughout the year and have been utilized in several high profile events such as the 2015 Papal visit. In 2016, our officers participated in assisting Radnor Township Police with the Villanova University NCAA Championship celebration and The Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
