The Park Forest Police Department is proud to be part of the South Suburban Emergency Response Team - SSERT, a mulit-regional SWAT team, and we currently have two department members- Detective JP Garrity and Officer James Jachymiak- assigned to this team.
As part of membership to the team, the police department is able to send other officers through SSERT's annual SWAT school. While these officers afforded the opportunity to attend SWAT school are not part of SSERT, the extensive tactical training they receive and subsequent SWAT certification allows them to bring invaluable skills back to their assignments. This year, Sergeant Julius Moore, currently assigned to the Community Policing Unit, and Officer Meghan Vold, a patrol officer, successfully completed SSERT's SWAT school. With nearly 100 hours of intense training with the premier SWAT team in the region behind them, we are proud to see them earn their SWAT certifications!
