The Florida SWAT Association is dedicated to those professionals operating in the tactical communities of law enforcement and the military. Although members are predominately Florida based law enforcement officers, the Florida SWAT Association is open to all officers that respond to and resolve critical incidents, as well as those individuals who provide direct support for those officers.

The Florida SWAT Association promotes high quality education and networking within the tactical community. The Florida SWAT Association achieves this through a wide ranging training calendar, a quarterly magazine, and several Florida SWAT sponsored annual events/competitions.

Since 1986, the Florida SWAT Association has been a leader in the tactical community and will continue to do so with a strong membership base of dedicated, professional tactical officers. If you have what it takes, then join the Florida SWAT Association now.
