How to stop a SWAT team from raiding your home

Police are training officers to arrest a SWAT raid and then hold the suspect until the next officer arrives to take custody.

The tactic is designed to help reduce the number of arrests.

Police in the US are increasingly using the tactic to try and reduce the amount of violence between officers and the public.

It is the latest example of police using force to reduce crime.

How to prepare your home for a SWAT party.


Put up barbed wire on the front door and keep a camera and other equipment nearby.


Lock the front window and doors.


Keep the front porch open.


Make sure the front doors are locked.


Lock all windows.


Keep all doors and windows covered with a sheet or plastic.


Keep an eye on the windows and doors during a raid.


Watch out for suspicious people, such as masked men and armed men with guns.


Make noise if a SWAT officer approaches your home.


If you are not a party to a raid, leave all valuables in your car.


Do not enter a house where there are children or pets.


Do nothing while the SWAT team is outside.


Do everything you can to stay out of the way of the officers, including hiding from the officers’ weapons and leaving the scene.


Do whatever you can not to get shot.


When the SWAT officers enter your home, you are encouraged to lie down and stay there, or put a towel over your head to keep them from seeing you.

This is called “fleeing.”


Stay calm and keep your eyes on the SWAT officer as they enter.


When they come back to the front, lie down on your back.


Stay down until they leave.


Do NOT turn around and run away, as this could cause the officers to shoot you.


If they arrest you, do not get down from your position.


Stay in your position until the officers leave the scene and return to their vehicle.
