Fremont SWAT takes second at Urban Shield

Still trying to confirm this, but it appears the Fremont Police Department’s SWAT contingent took second place in the Urban Shield anti-terrorism exercise held last weekend throughout the East Bay. Apparently the group finished just behind the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, which clearly has a leg up on SWAT situations due to the “routine” calls they receive in that jurisdiction. Fremont SWAT took first place honors in 2007, the first year of the state-wide competition.
