S.W.A.T is a special unit of police officers who have to pass through many training courses. They are trained to assist regular uniformed officers that need assistance. When a Code 3 occurs, S.W.A.T is the go-to type of unit. A Code 3 is when there's a report of an officer down or in more severe cases, several officers down. They are trained to clear rooms and take down heavily armed suspects. They normally respond to bank robberies, hostage situations, barricaded suspect situations, barricaded suspect/hostage situations, riots, shootouts, and etc. S.W.A.T is a life saving situation, not a life taking one. In some cases the suspects leave officers no choice but to take them down in a lethal manner. An officer is only permitted to fire their weapon when absolutely needed in the defense of their own life. That normally means when a suspect is shooting or aiming a gun at them.
