SWAT Team leader Sergeant Joel Slough, pictured here as he prepares his team for a rigorous, and challenging SWAT qualification test that is administered numerous times of the year.
SWAT team members are required to succesfully complete a timed military special forces obstacle course, and must qualify with a variety of weapons.
Sergeant Slough's motto for training, and readiness comes from the legendary Greek warrior and poet Archilochus, c 650 BC.
"We don't rise to the level of our expectations ...
we fall to the level of our training."
