Second shot of the Swat team. This one was taken just after they got down from the helicopter .

A Police tactical team (SWAT) is a highly trained, highly mobile, well-equipped team of police officers employed in situations, which require specialized skills, equipment and training. The word SWAT stands for Special Weapons And Tactics and was the acronym for the original police tactical teams first seen in Los Angeles, California in the early 1960’s.

Members are chosen from veteran applicants who must pass stringent physical, psychological and firearms proficiency tests.
