SOU Patch

The Special Weapons and Tactics Unit, (SWAT), was initially formed in 1978. 

Since it’s inception, the team has had only one purpose: TO SAVE LIVES!

 

This highly trained and specially equipped group of officers is prepared to respond to a high stress and critical situations. These incidents include hostage rescue, barricaded subjects, active shooter suspects, search warrants, counter terrorism, and violent felon/fugitive apprehension.


Whether apprehending a dangerous criminal, or conducting search and rescue operations for a missing child, team members are on call to respond to incidents 24 hours a day.

Officers assigned to the team are required to pass through a rigorous testing process which can last up to 24 hours. Officers must complete intensive physical challenges, shooting judgment courses, written tests, and an interview process. Members of the Titusville Fire & Emergency Services are currently serving on the SWAT team as "Medics" on the team call-outs.
