III. Personal skills and knowledge
(*= this question has to be answered in full sentences)
Your strengths:* I would say that my strengths include vehicle operations, advanced role-play and team-work.
Your weaknesses:* My weaknesses include my ongoing temper/issues with arguing and firearms usage.
Why do you want to join S.W.A.T.*: I'm seeking to join the SWAT Team so that hopefully they can kick me where it hurts so I can build up maturity and discipline. Furthermore, I'm looking to join a squad that focuses on team-work and builds their members up to become better in the future.
Why do you think you will be good for S.W.A.T.*: I have the role-play knowledge from SAI, the ability to work well in a team and learn from my mistakes. Yes my temper does get out of hand sometimes but I feel as that can be controlled, using that negativity to boost production in other areas.
Describe a SWAT specific RP and how you would approach the chosen situation (Requirements: minimum 150 words):
Role-play type; Bank Robbery
As the shift was coming to a close for the SWAT Team, a hot call came in regarding an ongoing armed robbery at the Los Santos National Bank. Each member would be divided into teams to maintain proper integrity and get the best possible outcome from the situation. Each team would consist of two to three officers, depending on the on-duty officers at the time. Team One and Team Two would engage the situation by entering through the main entrance on ground level while Team Three consisted of an air support unit to watch the roof for any subjects or suspicious activity. For support on the mission, a Tactical Paramedic would assist ground units by providing medical attention along with the San Andreas Medics if available. Ground teams would respond via Enforcers and Tahoe's (SUV's) while the air unit would respond via a Police Maverick. Before heading out each team would load up their respective vehicles with M4's for assault, beanbag shotguns for less-lethal take-downs, flash-bang and smoke grenades for tactical support as well as a sniper rifle for support via the air unit. Furthermore, the tactical paramedic would load their ambulance with medical equipment, ranging from tourniquets to medical kits and gauze. Furthermore; a call would be placed to the San Andreas Medics for support and local police to secure the perimeter around the bank.
As the SWAT Team arrived at the scene, the air unit would relay any activity on the roof as the ground teams went to locate the local police who may have information in regards to the bank layout. Team One would the Enforcer as sort of a mobile command center, attempting to gain access to the bank security feed to get visual inside. Once visual is gained; ground units would stack on the main doors and prepare to breach if they can confirm no civilians are in the lobby, leading to casualties or injuries.
A: If the lobby is clear, the breach would continue as normal.
B: If the lobby holds hostile subjects with hostages, negotiations would take place before a tactical breach and support from Sierra 1 (sniper in the air unit).
Moving on; Once the lobby has been secured by the SWAT Team, they would continue to sweep the floors until reaching the vault. Upon sweeping, the beanbag shotgun in combination with brute force in numbers would take down the subjects who are willing to comply. For those who aren't going to comply, the M4 would be used. We now reach the vault, where the main suspects are. The layout of the vault has two branching paths that both lead down into the vault, so Team One would take one path and Team Two the other. On a set time, both teams would flash and smoke the subjects while using their force to either shoot them down (if they don't comply and act hostile) or stun them with the shotgun to detain and furthermore arrest them. For the subjects who are complying, they are led out of the bank and to local police for transportation to the county jail.
Air Unit; During the time of the initial breach, Team Three would be monitoring the roof and the progress via bank windows. If any suspect was to try and escape via the roof, the air unit would hover by the roof and give verbal commands as Sierra 1 trained their sights on them. If the subjects refused to cooperate and kept trying to escape; Team Three would radio the location and maintain visual on them as local police intervened. If they try to open fire at the unit, Sierra 1 would take them down immediately.
Tactical Paramedic; During the entire time, the tactical paramedic would maintain support outside to the other officers as a second paramedic went with the ground team. If any officer was to be injured during the situation, the paramedic would transfer them to the closest hospital for treatment (or treat on the scene, depends on the injury).
After the bank is secured and confirmed to be clear, the SWAT Team would exit and relay their findings to the local police on scene. LSPD and other units would take care of the scene and re-opening the location as the SWAT Team returned to base for debriefing.
