Abstract:

This book captures the substantive information required by new SWAT commanders. Successful resolution of critical incidents is most often the result of basic concepts and principles implemented by knowledgeable, experienced and well-trained personnel under the direction of decisive leaders, but new SWAT commanders may not have benefited from coming through the ranks and SWAT pipeline. They could be at a considerable disadvantage as they accept command. The author introduces the officer to information, culture and methodology to approach various missions. The book takes the reader on an educational fictitious journey through a series of dreams that ultimately culminates in a SWAT commander successfully resolving a high-risk incident.
