In addition to the three teams, officers from various units and departments can be deployed as Disturbance Control Team (DCT) using the Field Force Method.

A collaborative, district-wide law enforcement effort spearheaded by the U.S. Marshals Service that is dedicated to the pursuit, apprehension, and successful prosecution of violent adult fugitives across the Northern District of Ohio with outstanding state and federal felony warrants. This task force was formed in direct support of Project Safe Neighborhoods to join the "nationwide commitment to reduce gun crime in America by networking existing local programs that target gun crime and providing those programs with additional tools necessary to be successful.” Our effectiveness is based on the ability of federal, state, and local agencies to cooperate in a unified offensive.
