swat training picPHOTOS & VIDEO: This afternoon, Lakewood’s SRT (Special Response Team – also known as SWAT) conducted  a training session on an abandoned home on New Central Avenue. The training exercise – directed by Commander Deputy Chief Fred Capper and Assistant Commander Lieutenant Greg Meyer – simulated a no-knock warrant, similar to the operation in which four of the team’s officers were shot in September’s shootout.

  1. Keep up the good work Swat. I can’t wait until the trial of the madman that shot up the Swat. Hopefully he will be forced to testify as to how he was able to shoot so many swat guys.

  2. the idea is not to attract attention to what the SRT team does. They are there to better help and serve the community in time of need. They are not show pieces and having a crowd of onlookers prevents them from performing their jobs. Stealth is the way to go.

    Thank you LPD and the SRT team for what you do every day.

  3. If I saw that taking place in my neighborhood without knowing that it was only for practice I’d be quite frightened. They should warn the neighborhood beforehand (without giving too many details that would spoil their practice, as to when and where.)

  4. # 6 , If you look at all the pictures for above article, you will notice a large white sign with big blue ( go Giants ) lettering that s that this is a police training exercise, which were placed all around the training location. thanks for your comment and concern, I guess they really are the professionals after all. BOO
