The execution of arrest warrants and search warrants are among the most dangerous tasks performed by law enforcement officers. A disciplined and well coordinated approach to these tasks is paramount to ensuring the safety of the law enforcement personnel involved, as well as the safety of members of the public who are encountered during such operations.

The Butte County District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigations is proactive in the investigation of criminal activity and enforcement of the law. As a result, it is frequently necessary for Investigators to conduct arrest and search warrant operations. In an effort to maximize the safety of Investigators and the public, and increase the effectiveness of the Bureau of Investigations in the performance of high risk operations, the Hazardous Entry & Arrest Team (H.E.A.T.) was formed in March 2005.

The H.E.A.T. team is not a SWAT team, however the team is comprised of Investigators who have had prior training and experience in special weapons and tactics, high risk warrant service and military tactical operations. The team members train together on a regular basis to maintain their skills and enhance their ability to work together in an efficient and coordinated manner.

The H.E.A.T. team may be utilized in the following situations:

- Provide entry services for search warrants and arrest warrants for the District Attorney’s Bureau of 


- Provide witness protection services.

- Assist local law enforcement agencies with tactical operations and high risk enforcement activities.

- Provide dignitary protection for elected officials on an as needed basis.
