SWAT teams can save live, but they're not called on everyday, so each Wednesday in San Juan, officers on the team prepare for high risk operations in their city.
The San Juan SWAT team goes through different scenarios and tries different tactics to improve their technique. They go through exercises like a vehicle assault with negotiators to free a hostage inside a car. The team practices on a weekly basis since February of this year.
