Atascadero Police Department Organization Chart
The Atascadero Police Department Investigations Unit currently has one Detective Sergeant, two Detectives, and two Community Response Officers. All the personnel in the Investigations Unit are being cross-trained so they are all able to work independently or as a team investigating crimes against property and crimes against persons.

Crime Scene Investigations
The Atascadero Police Department Property and Evidence Technician is allied with the Investigations Unit and is responsible for the collection and storage of evidence and property, including forensic or trace evidence. The Property and Evidence Technician responds to crime scenes to assist with the more complex identification and recovery of evidence. That evidence may include fingerprints, blood and semen samples, tool marks, or photographs. As even a casual viewer of the current proliferation of "CSI" television shows can attest, criminal investigations are more often demanding detailed and highly scientific crime scene investigations.

The Special Response Team, or SRT, was created to allow the Atascadero Police Department the option of deploying special weapons and tactics in situations that exceed the normal ability of a patrol officer or detective to respond effectively or safely. Such situations may include barricaded armed suspects, hostage incidents, or high-risk search or arrest warrant service.
The SRT has an authorized strength of six members. What is unique about the SRT is that the unit is fully integrated into the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department Special Enforcement Detail, or SED, the Sheriff's Department's special weapons and tactics unit. The Atascadero Police Department SRT is the only local police special weapons and tactics unit in San Luis Obispo County with such a distinction. The fully integrated unit is testimony to the confidence the Sheriff's Department has in the members of the SRT.
