While each unit operates independently of each other, the fundamental goal is for these units to overlap and support one another. As well, these units must coordinate and perform individual unique task assignments often in unison with regular patrol units assigned to separate geographical areas.

The Carson City Sheriff's Office has pursued the formation of specialized units as a proactive approach to gathering intelligence information, investigating individuals suspected of gang and drug activity, and eliminating the activity through enforcement efforts.
