The Douglasville Police Department has a Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T.) team, which consists of: assault/entry teams, sniper/observer teams, hostage negotiators and a command module.
All assigned officers for our S.W.A.T. unit are required to successfully complete a firearms, as well as a physical conditioning test, and are required to maintain these standards over time. The team members are required to attend highly specialized military and law enforcement special response team training schools.
Our tactical unit is also available to be utilized to assist other jurisdictions when requested, and works closely with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office SERT-team.
