Delco SWAT teams facing off in competition

Delaware County's SWAT teams are poised to tackle a host of challenges.

On Thursday, Oct. 20, the teams will participate in a training competition that tests the physical, technical and decision-making skills required in critical operations. The goal is to increase performance in a controlled environment, said a press release from the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office.

The teams will face off against each other in multiple obstacle-course challenges, as well as handgun, rifle and sniper shooting in long-range as well as “police officer down” scenarios. The competition will culminate with an awards ceremony, and District Attorney Jack Whelan will present team and individual trophies, the release said.

Sponsored by Videon Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Ram of Newtown Square, the Delco SWAT Challenge will begin at 8 a.m. with the awards presentation scheduled for 1 p.m. at the Delaware County Emergency Services Training Center, 1600 Calcon Hook Rd in Sharon Hill.
