Police SWAT Team Uniforms and GearPosted by Michael on October 8, 2012
The SWAT team, or Special Weapons and Tactics team, is a highly trained, elite tactical unit of regional police officers utilized for operations outside of the normal scope of the standard abilities of normal police officers. Their responsibilities employ specialized equipment, gear, weapons, and tactics in order to complete their high risk operations in close quarter, urban deployments. A SWAT team’s main focus is to complete their mission with little to no harm to the general public or to their fellow police officers. As part of their responsibilities, SWAT teams can provide ancillary support to local law enforcement during special events, sniper coverage for the arrival of important public figures, provide superior firepower to officers or civilians threatened by gun fire, stabilize high risk situations such as suicides, provide additional riot control, carry out special counter-terrorist actions, and much more.
Being part of an elite paramilitary unit and team, SWAT uses distinguishing uniforms and gear during their operations. In order to easily identify themselves from other friendly units or threats, SWAT clearly marks their uniforms and vests for operational safety. SWAT team gear armories contain a variety of pistols, shotguns, sniper rifles, sub machine guns and carbines to match the operational needs of any situation.
