A special weapons and tactics team better known as the SWAT team is an elite unit who works tactical assignments in national law enforcement departments. SWAT team officers are trained to perform high risk duties that are above the abilities of regular police officers such as hostade rescues, counter-terrorism operations, subduing barricaded suspects, engaging heavily armed criminals. SWAT teams are equipped with specialized weapons and firearms like machine guns, assault rifles, breaching shotguns, riot control agents, stun grenades, and sniper rifles. They wear heavy body armor carry ballostic shields and travel in armored vehicles. The SWAT team was established in 1968.


SWAT officers are selected from volunteers within their law enforcement organization. Depending on the department's policy, officers generally have to serve a minimum tenure within the department before being able to apply for a specialist section such as SWAT. This tenure requirement is based on the fact that SWAT officers are still law enforcement officers and must have a thorough knowledge of department policies and procedures.


SWAT applicants undergo rigorous selection and training. Applicants must pass stringent physical agility, written, oral, and psychological testing to ensure they are not only fit enough but also psychologically suited for tactical operations. Emphasis is placed on physical fitness so an officer will be able to withstand the rigors of tactical operations. After an officer has been selected, the potential member must undertake and pass numerous specialist courses that will make him a fully qualified SWAT operator. Officers are trained in marksmanship for the development of accurate shooting skills. Other training that could be given to potential members includes training in explosives, sniper-training, defensive tactics, first-aid, negotiation, handling K9 units, rappelling and roping techniques and the use of specialized weapons and equipment. They may also be trained specifically in the handling and use of special ammunition such as bean bags, flash bang grenades, tasers, and the use of crowd control methods, and special non-lethal munitions. Of primary importance is close-quarters defensive tactics training, as this will be the primary mission upon becoming a full-time SWAT officer.

The first significant deployment of LAPD's SWAT unit was on December 9, 1969, in a four-hour confrontation with members of the Black Panthers. The Panthers eventually surrendered, with three Panthers and three officers being injured. By 1974, there was a general acceptance of SWAT as a resource for the city and county of Los Angeles.

Not as advertised
By: Shopper on Sunday October 28, 2012
Cons: Uncomfortable, Difficult To Put On, Not Fun to Wear, Not worth what I paid, Not exactly what I was expecting
This is supposed to be good for a max size of 44. Not true at all. I'm a size 38 and the jumpsuit was the only part that even came close to fitting. The vest would only be fit for kids to wear. Sad.
WAY TOO SMALL!!!!
By: Mccusk on Wednesday October 24, 2012
Pros: Stylish
Cons: Difficult To Put On, Not exactly what I was expecting
Apparently the "one size" is meant for extremely small people. I am not a big guy (5'7") and I couldn't get the vest around my shoulders to put on never mind zip it up. Usually things are too big for me. This thing is meant for a little kid....
Son loved it!
By: SCMom2Boys on Wednesday October 17, 2012
Pros: Easy To Put On, Unique - Gets Attention, Overall good value for the money, Worked well for my purposes
I had been shopping around for just the right SWAT costume - most are way too expensive for what little you get - not the case here. Only con would be sizing - states One Size Fits Most; however, if an Adult Male would need to be size 32 waist or smaller
