Philadelphia’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) is a group of elite officers trained to deal with violent situations beyond the scope of normally equipped and trained police personnel. « In SWAT we handle all the violent crimes. When they call us something is very wrong » says officer Nick Mocharnuk. The viewers will be there as they serve warrants, deal with hostage situations, barricades. To do that they will use high powered automatic weapons, tactical equipment helmets and vest, and special weapons like tear gas and battering rams. You will better understand what officer Bill Hunter means when he says a mistake in this line of work could mean your life.
