Special Weapons and Tactics Team

Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office S.W.A.T.

The Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) team is an elite 20-man tactical unit trained to perform high-risk operations that fall outside of the abilities of our regular deputies, including serving high-risk arrest warrants, barricaded suspects, hostage rescue, and engaging heavily-armed criminals. Our SWAT team is equipped with specialized firearms including assault rifles, submachine guns, shotguns, carbines, riot control agents, stun grenades, and high-powered rifles for our snipers. We have specialized equipment including heavy body armor, entry tools, armored vehicles, advanced night vision optics, and motion detectors for covertly determining the positions of hostages or hostage takers inside of an enclosed structure.
