SWAT

The Rock Hill SWAT Team was formed in 1984 and originally consisted of 7 team members whose purpose was to handle high risk operations that fall outside of the abilities of normal officers. The team’s primary mission has not changed much from its inception but the team has now grown to a 24 person unit consisting of 3 different elements that are comprised of Entry, Marksman and Tactical Medic teams.

The Rock Hill SWAT Team is responsible for handling incidents such as high risk warrant service, hostage rescue, barricaded subjects and counter terrorism operations. All members are highly trained to perform these operations and utilize special weapons, tactics, vehicles and equipment to perform these missions.
