(LAKE AFTON, Kan.)
It hasn't happened in two years, and only three will make the cut. SWAT tryouts in Sedgwick County ended Wednesday. From reading maps, to flipping tires, to a grueling obstacle course, the process of "getting in," isn't for the weak.
Tryouts are the like the job, far from easy. "I've missed Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas dinners, birthdays, all kinds of things that you can get called out for," explains Lt. Vaughn, a veteran SWAT member.
But for the 13 Wichita Police Officers and Sedgwick County Sheriff's Deputies, SWAT is a responsibility they're willing to push their bodies to the limit for.
