Special Weapons And Tactics (S.W.A.T.)

The mission of the Winston-Salem Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics Team is to provide the City of Winston-Salem a highly trained unit to respond and resolve critical and dangerous incidents exceeding the normal capabilities of patrol, investigatory, and other units within the police department. The SWAT Team will respond when traditional police methods and operations may not successfully resolve the situation without exposing the participants to undue risk. The goal of the Winston-Salem Police Department SWAT Team is to resolve such incidents, whenever possible, in a coordinated manner with the least amount of risk and vulnerability to citizens, victims, other involved parties, team members and perpetrators.
