US experts train SWAT men to fight hardcore criminals

A 23-member police team with combat training is being trained to conduct operation against hardcore criminals from next month, official sources said yesterday.
The special detective branch of police 'Special Weapon and Tactic Team (SWAT)' is being trained by nine experts from US police, military and FBI from the second week of January as part of capacity building to combat terror.
The sources said the high-skill training for police, the first ever in Bangladesh, will complete on February 28.
The SWAT will go for action whenever existing law enforcing agencies even the elite force Rapid action Battalion (Rab) would fail to deal with the criminal groups or any criminal.
The SWAT members equipped with sophisticated weapons will act as 'quick response' and conduct 'risky' operations in Dhaka City and even outside if requires.
The SWAT, a special wing of the Detective Branch, will work under direct control of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
