Yes. we are taught articulable facts when it comes to making entry, which is usually discussed in the operations brief. If SWAT is there it is usually because of a reason that has already been articulated in a search/arrest warrant. We also train on exigent circumstances, which can alter the plan of action on the scene, in an instant.
