Utah officers train to be part of elite SWAT team
By Pat Reavy
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Members of the Salt Lake police SWAT team don't get paid any extra for being a member.
They have to be prepared at a moment's notice to respond to an emergency regardless of whether they've just completed a 10-hour shift on their regular beat or are attending a birthday party or other special family function. They often put their own lives in harm's way to protect the public.
