SWAT - Special Weapons And Tactics

The Griffin Police Department’s SWAT team responds to incidents that are deemed “high risk” or are considered to be outside the realm in which a normal response would be practical, or is deemed unsafe. Such incidents include hostage situations, barricaded suspects, high-risk warrant service, dignitary protection, surveillance, search warrant executions and other tactical situations.

The SWAT team is not a stand-alone unit; instead, its members are assigned to each shift and division where they perform duties as uniformed patrol officers and criminal investigators until they receive a call to respond to a tactical situation.

Team members training includes dynamic and static entry methods, hostage negotiations and rescue, dignitary protection; use of force, less than lethal force, full auto weapons, tactical rifle and counter sniper measures.
