The Pima Regional SWAT team commander, Lt. John Stuckey said the incident in California involving the former LAPD officer highlighted why it was important for local SWAT teams to be ready to respond to any type of emergency.
“My heart goes out to the officers and their families, for those that lost their lives. It is stressful to think about this kind of stuff. That’s why we train as hard as we do, and that’s why we spend the money we need to get it done as safely as possible,” said Lt. Stuckey.
The Pima Regional SWAT Tactical team comprised of seven different agencies, including Pima County, Oro Valley, Sahuarita, the Airport, and Pasqua Yaqui.
