War Comes Home At America’s Expense: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing-SWAT

This is an interesting publication. The ACLU conducts an analysis of SWAT. In the publication there is the analysis, the findings, and recommendations. Then in an Appendix there are a MOU, policy, training PowerPoint, operational plan. These documents provide a unique perspective (an insiders view) on a SWAT deployment.

I think this would be a perfect resource for Criminal Justice courses or for students reporting on SWAT or policing.
