I want this thread to be posted about Law Enforcement in the US on the State level and Federal agencies. I will explain the 1033 Program that Police has and for just some slight info my senior project for school involves the Militarization of Police.

SWAT Team - Weapons & Equipment
SWAT team weapons vary from unit to unit. Entry Teams are typically armed with:

  • assault rifle carbines
    AR-15 variants like the M4a1, CQBR, Colt Commando
    Sig Sauger 551 / 552
    HK G36K / G36C

  • sub machine guns
    9mm HK MP5
    10mm MP510
    .40 / .45 HK UMP
    5.7mm FN P90

  • semi-automatic pistols
    Glock and Sig Sauer 9mm and.40 S&W pistols are common, as are
    H&K USPs and
    Beretta 92F 9mm
SWAT Teams - Role & Training
The exact duties differ depending on the agency and jurisdiction involved although all SWAT units can be characterized as being roled with carrying out high risk operations that would normally be outside of the regular law agency's capabilities.
  • active shooters
    (dealing with shooting sprees)
  • dealing with barricaded suspects
  • hostage rescue scenarios
  • counter terrorism scenarios
  • protection of VIPs
  • high-risk arrests and searches
  • riot control

@WebMaster also I trained with my mentor for my senior project, he is also a SWAT officer and got to train with the Team :) anyhow I saw most of their gear which involved a vest, communication headset, radio, pistol, their main weapon, and a helmet.
