SWAT Management 1.0 - Part 1

SWAT Management 1.0 - Part 1 

This is the first of a two-part course addressing the basic development and operations of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Teams. In these two parts, we provide essential background material and supporting documentation to provide a deeper understanding of the philosophy behind such teams and their various strategies, as well as possibly aid in establishing a SWAT team. Tactical response situations often present unusual and elevated risks to residents and officers involved. The high profile nature of critical incidents, which are generally beyond the resolution capability of first responders, focuses attention on the outcome, which often becomes the barometer by which the agency and its leadership are measured.
