A special reaction team (SRT) is a specialized team or element within law enforcement units of the United States Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, to respond to high risk situations within a military base or compound.[1]

The teams are military equivalents of civilian police department SWAT teams, and receive their training at U.S. Army Military Police School at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.[2][3]
