Special Weapons And Tactics Team (SWAT)

The SWAT team responds to high-risk calls, such as serving arrest warrants on potentially violent suspects, executing search warrants in significant drug and other contraband cases, hostage rescues, and bringing barricaded suspects into custody.


The Tustin Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team officers work in conjunction with the Irvine and Tustin SWAT team and are the most tactically sound officers in the Department. This partnership provides the department access to a fully staffed tactical team in the event of a situation beyond the normal scope of a traditional patrol response.

It has been shown over the years that the presence of a highly trained, highly skilled tactical unit can substantially reduce the risk of injury or loss of life to citizens, officers, and suspects and the well managed team response to critical incident greatly increases the chances for a successful resolution.
