U.S. Law Enforcement Task Force and SWAT Unit Acronyms

Below you will find an alphabetical listing of acronyms used to identify a wide variety of various police and law enforcement task forces, special police units, as well as other groups working to make communities safer in the United States.

While certain "insider" acronyms and lingo are used and recognized almost exclusively within law enforcement, others have gained wider acceptance and entered the vernacular of the general public.

NOTE: Not all of the groups listed below are still active, while others may have taken on new monikers. As a result of the rough economy and shrinking budgets, a number of task forces, SWAT teams, and K-9 units have been forced to downsize, disband, or merge with other nearby teams. Be aware that some of these abbreviations and acronyms may have completely different meanings in different locales. If no location is offered for a task force or group, this usually means it exists in several locations across the United States.

PUNCTUATION NOTE: We're cognizant of the fact that some of the organizations listed below fail to use proper punctuation in their names. Rather than correcting this, we present their names as they normally refer to themselves.
