Specially-trained police officers form "Hostile Response Teams" for dealing with threats beyond the ability of regular police officers to deal with. These teams can be found at airports and other sensitive structures. HRT members are often former soldiers, and in some cities, virtually all of them have combat experience in the military. Because they often deal with hostage situations, they must be well-trained in marksmanship.

Some HRT members are trained in forced-entry, and wear heavier armor than the other members. They must be well-trained in close-quarters combat.

A typical SWAT team consists of eleven members, which include an officer and two element leaders. A typical "half-team" consists of an element leader and five members. Supporting members include negotiators and snipers. These statistics represent the typical Forced Entry Team Member, rather than element leaders or officers.
