The town of Fort Stockton will soon get a SWAT Unit. This of course will help law enforcement officials with any kind of situation. The SWAT Unit will be good not only for Fort Stockton but for surrounding areas as well. They say creating a SWAT team will help them be prepared for any kind of situation.
“The last thing that I wanna get is caught in a situation if we have an active shooter situation at one of the schools, at the hospital wherever it might be,” Fort Stockton Police Chief, Art Fuentes, said.
“I know the importance of having a tactical team and I know the importance of having tactical equipment. Our community needs to know that if their children are in school if something happens, our community needs to know that the police department has a plan in place to go and take care of that violent act,” Fuentes said.
