View Full Version : Trying to find a new SWAT team saying....

06-02-2011, 04:57 AM
My departments Emergency Response Unit (ERU) team is trying to come up with a new saying to go on our ERU apparel. Anyone have any interesting/funny/cool sayings associated with their "SWAT" teams?

'It's not that we're that good, it's just everyone else sucks'

Your either SWAT or your not.

If you run, you'll just die tired.

Ok, ok, that's really for a sniper, but SWAT teams have snipers. :)

"Team America?"

"Relax: We're here to help you with your problem"

gear label:
"ERU: No. Not yours. Can't have it."

Actually an old one is "We don't meet standards. We set them."

Hate to dull the mood, but are these real SWAT team mottos or jokes? Not being an American officer I can’t tell if it’s sarcasm or not. But I know if any local tactical teams used these mottos we’d get fined for not showing professional conduct! :rolleyes:

Let's just say they aren't considered 'official' motto's ;)

06-02-2011, 07:00 PM
Jokes mostly . I don't know of many mottos that are displayed publicly anymore for this very reason. Because American law enforcement has become so easily subjected to frivolous lawsuits, a lot of the teams who make a sincere attempt to appear professional in their conduct don't have public 'mottos' especially that have a humorous slant---believe it or not, this could be fodder for legal retribution against a department that could be seen as "not really caring about the community---just look at that phrase on their truck."

Now team t-shirts and slogans painted on the wall in the weight room are a different story. But when we're working we aren't really concerned about slogans. We're just trying to do the job right and go home.

You're either SWAT or your not.

^^This. I figured someone would throw this one in there.

"SWAT: Sit Wait And Talk"

This is probably the most accurate ; )

What SWAT team needs a saying?

Usually, it's just a head nod to "those who ain't".

06-03-2011, 07:14 PM
I'll go more the serious route. Here's a couple I know of:

Acta Non Verba - Action, not words.

Veniamus Gladiis - With Swords, we come

Servare Vitas - To Save Lives. (This is the motto of the FBI's HRT)

Thank you chief. This is exactly what I was thinking. Being a SWAT member myself, personally I think it's pointless to have a motto. Do your job, do it well. Let your actions be your motto.

I always liked the Mossad's motto: By any means necessary (thou shalt make war)
