Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T) Team

Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T) team members are among the best marksmen and most highly trained officers in the Sheriff’s Office, coming from primary assignments in all divisions and undergoing a rigorous physical and mental evaluation prior to selection. Once selected to join the team, deputies are required to successfully complete a demanding basic SWAT school and continue on to more advanced training in team tactics, specialized weapon systems and munitions, marksmanship, explosive and mechanical breaching, and emergency trauma. SWAT team members are on-call around the clock, every day of the year.
