SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) is an intelligence service unit in the Vice City Police Department, operating from the VCPD headquarters in Washington Beach. Unlike other units, SWAT is more dissolved in shady works and black money. The uproar began upon the disclosure of joint investigation report on the Vice City Crime Tree, allegedly terming SWAT as internally corrupt, however, this process was further to be investigated by the department. This lead players to go through the history of SWAT in the city, helping in further revealing these suspect works.
SWAT is said to have a hand in smuggling illegal immigration across the state through the Vice City Port Authority. SWAT is alleged to likely to have contacts with the French special services, namely GIGN (Groupe d'Intervention de la Gendarmerie Nationale) and DGSE (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure.) This is evident, as the services accessed the state and assaulted multiple magnates and agents at different occasions, the first being the shootout in the Bal Harbour Mall.
SWAT, along with the FBI, is interconnected with the Mafia crimes in the state, players believe that both the organizations avoid taking any measures against these organizations, probably due to undisclosed internal connections within this joint network. For the reason, a strange FBI Washington can be seen in a secluded region in Downtown Vice City, probably referencing as to how the meeting could've been held.
The SWAT has also been involved in the Enforcement Nexus.
