The development process starts at selection and continues from there. Begin giving new operators small leadership tasks where they will be successful and continue to build upon that during their time with SWAT. The want for more information; The NTOA Academy, Leadership Courses, Managerial courses are all important; the lack of a drive for more knowledge is a clue. It is imperative that we train and educate our new team leaders in decision making processes during critical incidents.
