Swat teams and T-R-T's respond to most armed conflict situations, including drug raids, high risk warrant services and hostage situtations. The plan is to have participating units return home with a keener sense of how to do that. Pulaski's police department was asked to host the school when a member of its tactical response team displayed impressive skills during a sniper training exercise at Fort Lee.
