ACLU critical of how SWAT teams are used
The Boston Globe - 07/07/2015
Jack McDevitt, director of Northeastern University’s Institute on Race and Justice, said there should be a conversation about which warrants should be executed by local police departments.
“People are getting warrants served on them every day, but you don’t need SWAT teams to always do that,” said McDevitt. “How are people evaluating when to bring in a unit like SWAT so that it maximizes the unit and minimizes the cost?”
