S.W.A.T.

The Pickens County Sheriff's Office Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team's mission is to preserve life and property during critical incidents and high-risk operations. The SWAT Team is called upon to respond for service of high-risk search and arrest warrants; incidents involving barricaded suspects, hostage rescues, or active shooters; crowd control; and other situations requiring resources beyond the capacity of the patrol division. Members of SWAT also provide training in tactics to other members of the Sheriff's Office during directed training exercises.

The SWAT Team is currently comprised of 20 members. Members participate on the team as a collateral duty, in addition to their full-time assignments within the Sheriff's Office. Members of SWAT are selected for the team during a competitive process in which their physical fitness, firearms skills, communications skills, decision-making abilities, and job performance are evaluated. Members of the SWAT Team are expected to be available "on-call" at short notice, dedicate a significant amount of personal time to training, and strive for continuous improvement in the performance of their mission – saving lives.
