The Special Reaction Team breaches a barricaded door Sept. 23 during an active shooter exercise as part of Exercise Constant Vigilance 2015 aboard Camp Foster. SRT Marines swept through the building, clearing each floor room by room, ensuring no other threats were present before arriving at the shooter’s barricade. SRT breached the barricade, detained the shooter and removed the hostage from the room. The Special Reaction Team responds to trouble calls such as active shooters with hostages in the same way the civilian special law enforcement teams act, according to Staff Sgt. Brandon Price, the section chief of the Special Reaction Team with the Provost Marshal’s Office Headquarters and Support Battalion, Marine Corps Installations Pacific-Marine Corps Base Camp Butler, Japan.
