Tulsa Police Host SWAT Games

Posted: Updated:
Tulsa Police are hosting the 10th annual Oklahoma SWAT Competition Wednesday. They welcome tactical teams from departments across the state to put their skills to the test.

"Even though it's a competition and it's more of a shooting competition style, certainly all of the skills that are necessary to be a good tactical operator are going to be showcased here," said Captain Ryan Perkins with Tulsa Police.

Tulsa Police are hosting the event, because they won the event in Edmond last year. The team that hosts does not compete.

Teams from Broken Arrow Police, Bartlesville Police, Edmond Police, Norman Police, Oklahoma City Police, Stillwater Police, and the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs competed.

There are six events, including one dealing with Hostage Rescue. Teams have to make their way into a building and rescue a dummy safely. There are also several shooting events.

Organizers said the event is meant to be fun and competitive, but it also reinforces important professional skills. It helps departments keep a close, working relationship.

The event ends at 3 p.m.
