Oakland PD Risk Assessment and Operations Plan for SWAT Operations

This Oakland PD document (link here) is used to decide whether to send its SWAT (Tactical) team on an operation. SWAT teams typically include eight officers, armed with AR-15 assault rifles, flash bang grenades, chemical agents, "less lethal" shotguns, and use the "Bearcat" tank-like armored vehicle. 

See pages 14-16 of this document for the factors that OPD considers when deciding whether to deploy its SWAT (Tactical) team.
