Behind the scenes with Pima Regional SWAT

The Pima Regional SWAT Team has been in existence since 2004. They’re considered among the top SWAT teams in the nation. Some of the members go all over the country teaching SWAT tactics, SWAT philosophy and decision making.

They’re considered to be on leading edge of standards. The SWAT team is made up of officers from Oro Valley, Marana, South Tucson, Sahuarita and Pasqua Yaqui Police Departments.

They spend over 500 hours a year training for the worst case scenarios. Their training is reality based, that includes using live ammo.

Captain Don Kester says, “It’s been proven to be the best training and the most effective training if we can keep it realistic. So the more realistic, the better they will respond in an actual situation.”

    You might want to pull this post. There’s not much “positive” about the Pima County SWAT team. (and I follow your site because I support LAW ENFORCEMENT, not the corrupt, illegal use of “law enforcement” resources.)
