Hamilton County Police Association Special Weapons and Tactics Team
The Hamilton County Police Association Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) is comprised of an elite group of highly trained police officers from various police agencies throughout Hamilton County. SWAT was established to assist Hamilton County law enforcement agencies during high risk incidents that involve life threatening situations. Examples of SWAT incidents include but are not limited to the following: armed and unarmed barricaded persons; hostage situations; high risk search and arrest warrants; any other life threatening situation. SWAT also assists agencies outside of Hamilton County, including the United States Secret Service, in providing protection for dignitaries and other high risk individuals.
Blue Ash Police Department is proud to have three officers currently assigned to serve as SWAT members. The department has had at least one member on HCPA SWAT for over thirty years.
