Team commanders must raise the profile of their teams. Stay active. Yes, I mean do warrant service and drug raids even if you have to poach the work. First, your team needs the training time under true callout conditions. If all your team does is train, but seldom deploy, you will end up training just to train. You need to train to fight. You already know that.
Translation: "We need to justify spending all the money and time we do on the teams, so use them in situations where there's no need for them. And you can call it training!"
And if somebody winds up dead because you wanted to put on your ninja suit as often as possible, well, that's the cost of training, right?
Crap like this is why A: a lot of agencies don't NEED a damn SWAT team and B: a lot of people like me have less and less trust in the police. Speaking of which, a case which could have been handled by "Knock knock, sir, I have a search warrant" gets two officers shot because they had to go kicking doors instead. And shooting up the place with a bunch of kids in the house. They fired 37 shots, many of which- from the sound of it- were just pointed, not aimed, and it's a miracle some kids weren't killed. Only good thing about this is the police not getting to hang somebody to cover up that they didn't do their job right.
