North County SWAT Patch
The North County Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team was developed as a multi-agency emergency response team for North Orange County cities. Their purpose is to respond in a timely manner to contain and effectively address high-risk and high-profile incidents.

The SWAT Team is comprised of highly trained tactical officers from the La Palma, Brea, Fullerton, La Habra, and Placentia Police Departments.

The team consists of:
  • Six tactical teams
  • Hostage Negotiation Team
  • Tactical Dispatchers
  • Medical Support Team
    • Paramedics
    • ER doctor

When all of these resources are combined, they constitute a fully functional SWAT Team that is capable of addressing a wide range of incidents.

The team trains together on a regular schedule so that they are capable of complete integration and can provide a swift and appropriate response for most high-risk or tactical incidents at any time.
