  • Full Time SWAT Teams

    Hello all,

    I am a law enforcement officer with a little over 4 years experience and 1.5 years assigned to my departments SWAT team. During my time with this department and serving on my team, I have developed a real passion for SWAT and tactical operations. Having said that, despite the fact that the population of the city where I am employed exceeds 100,000 people, my department's team is part time (16-20 hours per month training). I am considering leaving this department in the next year or two to gain employment with a department that has a full time team. While I realize there are no guarrantees and competition for full times slots can be intense, I am willing to take a chance to pursue what I enjoy. With all that said, aside from the obvious cities like LA, Dallas, or Phoenix, what other cities have full time SWAT/SRT type teams?

    Thanks in advance and know your contribution to this thread is much appreciated.

      NYPD does but, they also cover a variety of calls and they are called ESU. I think San Fran. PD, MPD (DC), Chicago, Pretty much all of the large and major Urban Metropolitan areas I believe have full time teams.
