Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT)

SWAT is designed to provide tactical support to other MPD units and assist with executing high risk search warrants, barricaded suspects, hostage situations, crowd management, or any incident in which there is a danger to the public. SWAT Tactical members are assigned to the Special Operations Division.  While not assigned to specific tactical duties, members provide a city-wide Directed Patrol function.
