SWAT-eNews-May-2011

In this Issue
Dear P1 Member,

In the May 2011 SWAT eNews, Sgt. Glenn French examines the takedown of Osama bin Laden and the similarities in tactics used by SEAL Team Six and SWAT Officers here in the United States, and Lt. Dan Marcou looks at the excellent work done by the Columbia (S.C.) PD SWAT team. You may recall that last week, an explosives-laden 22-year-old gunman took them on (spoiler alert: SWAT won!).

Meanwhile, Sgt. Dan Danaher examines some of the tactical considerations for the use of handheld and gun-mounted flashlights in low-light SWAT operations. All that, plus some of the top news on SWAT actions in the past couple of months.
