The Burlington Police Department offers a variety of special units for officers to work within during their career. Having several different units allows officers to gain diversified experiences in their career. The special units offer the employee the opportunity to expand their knowledge and experience in areas other than uniformed patrol. This also benefits the citizens of Burlington because their needs are better addressed by officers that are specially training in dealing with specific needs.

The special units currently offered by the department are:
