LAPD SWAT may rethink training after injuries


The Daily Breeze

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Police Department decided to change its selection and training procedures within the SWAT unit after four applicants were seriously injured on an obstacle course, a commanding officer said Thursday.

Capt. Jeffrey L. Greer, commanding office of the LAPD's Metropolitan Division, said it was those injuries, and not a confidential report completed by a panel of experts, that prompted change.
