Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Unit
The Chandler Police Department’s SWAT Unit is specially trained and utilized in instances when other-than-standard police procedures, equipment, and weapons are required. SWAT has the responsibility of responding to critical incidents and operations of heightened risk. The philosophy of SWAT is that every decision is made with the preservation of life as the first priority of any devised strategy. This philosophy guides training and ensures that operational decisions obtain peaceful resolutions whenever possible.
