Dear Police1 Member,

SWAT teams continually expand their training, equipment and technical capabilities to better meet their mission. In today’s SWAT eNewsletter Mike Wood discusses the importance of improving the relationship between bomb technicians and SWAT operators to counter the threat of explosive devices in the tactical environment, and Dan Marcou reviews the many specialty skills required by a modern SWAT team.

We also review Kopfjager Industries’ Reaper Shooting Platform, which offers a range of movement perfect for SWAT snipers, and present a brief history of how snipers became part of policing.
