On September 29th, former and current members of the Cleveland Police Special Weapons and Tactics Unit (SWAT) gathered at the American Legion Hall in Parma to celebrate their 40 years of service to the residents of Cleveland. Joined by family, friends and supporters, including the first Crisis Negotiating Team, they came from as far away as California, Florida and Georgia to break bread and share memories.
