SWAT, "Special Weapons and Tactics Team", is an elite paramilitary Special Operations tactical unit of the police department, first established in America.
The SWAT team is trained to perform high-risk operations including hostage rescues and counter-terrorism, serving to protect their designated location from heavily-armed criminals with an expertise beyond the capabilities of regular officers. Not only do they receive high-quality training, but are also equipped with specialized firearms including submachine guns and grenades.
SWAT was first established in the Los Angeles Police Department in the late 60s, and since then, Officer Charles Joh has made his mark as the first Korean American officer to have joined and currently serve, in this elite force.
Officer Joh has served in LAPD since 1996, a veteran with 14 years of experience in the field. In an effort to join the SWAT Team since 2003, Officer Joh trained vigorously and served in various departments such as the Metro Transit Police team and the Mounted Police Department to increase his experience level. And finally, in March of 2008, he became a member of the SWAT team.
He is now a respected member of LAPD's SWAT, being part of SWAT's Scuba Team for maritime operations as well as serving as a leader for many trainings, including marksmanship, roping, and defense tactics. As a proud Korean, he has even taught his fellow SWAT officers TaeKwonDo, as means of cultural exchange.
A father of two sons, a loving husband, and a proud son to his parents. But when he's on duty, he is Officer Charles Joh, ready to put his full energy towards serving and protecting his community. Let the action begin!
