As the demands increase on law enforcement tactical teams, leaders must prepare their SWAT operators for virtually any event, both on and off duty. While a certain amount of stress is an expected outcome in most encounters, it can begin to impact work performance, decision-making, and the important balance between work and home life. In the most extreme examples, the entire system, body and mind, are stressed to their maximal ability, which will either lead to a successful outcome for the operator, who is physically and mentally trained for the event, or it will end badly. The overall goal is to prevent and mitigate these stressors and ultimately build resiliency for both the individual operator and the team as a whole.
