Special operations response team
The Sevier County Sheriff's Office Special Operations Response Team (S.O.R.T.) Team consists of highly motivated, specially trained officers that excel at performing very specialized missions under extremely stressful circumstances, sometimes with very little advance notice. Each team member possesses a variety of skills and experience. When brought together, these members function as a single unit within a team concept, which allows missions to be completed thoroughly and safely.
