After one look over the edge, Josh Allred rappels down the 50-foot high, five story building.

As one of 15 Special Weapons and Tactics team candidates from seven agencies in training this week, he’s learning tactical maneuvers like rappelling that thrill seekers perform for an adrenaline rush. For the candidates, these maneuvers must become a precise and calculated procedure they perform under pressure.

“What we’re looking for here is that they are able to think and physically sustain and stay focused over a lengthy period of time,” said Tactical Commander Lt. Rich Brede.
