Homepage > Operations > SWAT


The Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) section deals with high-risk situations outside the realm of normal police operations. Possible situations include barricaded gunmen, hostage rescue, an active shooter and high-risk search/arrest warrants.

Specially selected members receive training in advanced tactics and planning and in the use of specialized equipment not normally accessible during day-to-day police activity. The primary goal of the SWAT team is peaceful resolution with the preservation of life.
