    Hello,
    I am a very very tactically oriented individual. With 6 years in the USMC (1 tour), a major in law and society, and a minor in forensic science, I am stuck. I have a lot of other merits such as "Master Breacher" (urban breaching course), advanced open water diver, and so on. I am currently really torn as to whether I should make a run at the F.B.I's HRT or not. I would like to find myself doing more than bi monthly swat training, but am not sure I would like the bigger slower cases that traditionally accompany the F.B.I. Any suggestions? any good full time swat teams around Indiana? Any input or advice at all is welcome. Thanks

    Correct me if I'm wrong but, it seems that you were in the reserves, went to some schools, and did a deployment? Now you are in school?

    The FBI has a 'Tactical Recruiting Program' which, if hired, gives you a shot at the HRT screener. Tough stuff. I know that you must have at least a Bachelor's Degree before they will look at your app. There are a plethora of highly qualified individuals who have many years of military and law enforcement experience that apply. It is HIGHLY competitive.

    I would apply to many different agencies. Don't put all of your eggs in one basket. Many guys apply to numerous agencies only to get one offer. Most agencies have a high-speed tactical unit. Good luck. Semper Fi.

      Sounds like you would be more interested in a big city pd with plenty of door breaking and action.

        On top of that, I'm pretty sure the FBI is going to want you to learn how to be an agent, first, and expect you to work cases. Plus they'll make you junp through all the same application hoops as everyone else.

        +1 on the program being tough. I was told that it was aimed at scooping up some people with a LOT of high-speed training, like SEALs, Delta, and Force Recon. So those are the kinds of dudes you'll have to compete with.

          If you want to be on a tactical team in less than three years in a LEA, apply with the USBP and after two years you can try out for Bortac. Its is very, very difficult to complete the training but if you do you will have a ton of action and training. They work all around the world.
