The primary function of the Technical Support Unit is to provide support through the use of current electronic technologies to enhance the effectiveness, efficiency and completeness of investigations for the entire agency. The detectives in this unit store, issue, maintain, operate and install electronic equipment used in investigations.

Members of the unit respond to all SWAT/Negotiator callouts to provide support for telephone communications. They work closely with technical support components of different state and federal agencies to enhance and support multi-agency investigations. Their use of technology helps the JSO achieve investigative resolutions quickly, accurately, and with cost-effective results.
