The Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team
In 1991 the Dodge City Police Department saw the need to form a Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team. The department received a grant for approximately $75,000.00 to train and supply equipment for the team.
The team currently is allotted 10 entry members, and two long-range marksmen from the Dodge City Police Department and 2 members from the Ford County Sheriff's Office. The team also has 6 medics from Ford County Fire and EMS.
