Armed suspects who barricade themselves pose an extreme danger to the community. They are a special tactical problem for police. The actions of the first officers on the scene can make the difference in whether or not a suspect is taken into custody without escalation of an already difficult situation.

Barricaded suspect incidents often go beyond the capabilities of patrol and or detectives. Special Weapons and Tactics teams use verbal and physical tactics to resolve these incidents. SWAT personnel must gain control of the incident as quickly and efficiently as possible. From the first SWAT officer on scene to the final debrief, certain procedures should be followed.
