Special Weapons And Tactics

S.W.A.T.

The Henry County Police Department Special Weapons And Tactics team (S.W.A.T.) is a highly trained and specially equip group comprised of sworn police officers and paramedics. Ready at a moments notice, they respond to High Risk Situations that are beyond the scope of normal departmental duties, and require assets that are not normally available to the rest of the Department.

The S.W.A.T. Team is utilized for the following incidents:

  1. Hostage/sniper/barricaded gunman situations
  2. V.I.P. protection
  3. Rescue of personnel or civilians who have been captured, isolated, or endangered as a result of a tactical situation
  4. Riot control during civil disturbances
  5. Perimeter control during protracted situations
  6. Searches for missing persons
  7. Assistance with large-scale street level drug operations
  8. Service of narcotic search warrants as deemed necessary by the Narcotics Commander Rescue /relief assistance during natural or man-made disaster
  9. Situations of mutual aid to other jurisdictions
  10. Bomb threats and bomb emergencies
  11. Security coverage for special events
  12. All other as directed by the Chief of Police

Members train monthly to hone their skills and to maintain the highest level of job proficiency. This training is in addition to their normal duties, and is completely voluntary. Although extremely demanding, there is a high level of personal satisfaction experienced by each member during their tenure. Members also train with other State and Local agencies to experience other methods, philosophies, and for possible inter-agency deployment.

The selection process for assignment to the team is extensive, and includes both physical and mental challenges. Candidates undergo a grueling day of trails to include; Firearms Proficiency, Tactical Shooting, Push-Ups and Sit-Ups, Timed Obstacle Course, Officer Down Drill, ¼ Mile Sprint, and Rappel Familiarization. Each Candidate is the subjected to an Oral Interview Board and Internal Personnel File Review. The Henry County Police S.W.A.T. team only selects those with the highest level of Leadership Potential.
