SWAT Update: Command and Control  

A SWAT response to an incident is one of the most critical and dynamic situations that an agency has to face. Avoiding danger altogether is not possible, but effectively managing this risk is the priority for those who are in the position of leadership and command.

This telecourse training video details some of the key components involved in a successful SWAT operation. The program features expert interviews from commanders and SWAT team veterans who have real experience to share from incidents they have encountered. The program provides an in-depth look from those who were closest to the March 2009 Oakland, CA incident where a parolee-at-large killed four Oakland officers.
