It is no longer a new development that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) has been disbanded and another unit introduced to replace them. Before and after SARS’s disbandment, many people, especially the youths have been protesting for an end to SARS and SWAT because they believe that it is a mere change of name. But as it regards to this, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) promised the people that no member of the disbanded SARS will be included in SWAT.
To show their readiness, the SWAT has begun training with immediate effect. They started their training today and they are so serious with it. They made it public by recording and sharing a video of them training.
The trainees appear very serious and ready for the job. With the level of their seriousness during the training today, it shows that they will mind their job very well, other than what SARS did that got them disbanded.
See pictures from the training today.
