In the early 1980’s a group of Texas police officers who were assigned to SWAT units saw an obstacle in the path of their careers. This obstacle was a lack of training, and a lack of standards for tactical officers, tactical teams, and the operations they conduct. These officers recognized a need for a state association to exchange information, to create standards of training, and equally as important, to create and provide affordable training resources for tactical officers and teams.
