COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA), a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to serving the law enforcement community, has released the latest update to its Tactical Response and Operation Standard for Law Enforcement (TROS).

This document establishes a core set of concepts and principles that improve standardization within the profession of tactical law enforcement services.

First offered in 2008, the SWAT Standard was reviewed, expanded and updated in both 2011 and 2015 to represent the most contemporary best practices being used in the law enforcement community.

The most substantive changes to the latest revision include the addition of recommended equipment lists, better guidance on both TEMS and CNT capabilities, and a terminology change from Priorities of Life to Safety Priorities.

The latest version of the NTOA Tactical Response and Operations Standard can be downloaded from the NTOA’s website at
