Every state needs this law|Maryland's SWAT transparency bill produces its first disturbing results
And a law against the use of SWAT for misdemeanor offenses is so obvious we shouldn't need a law for it, but you bet we do need one.

Wow. Ours goes out less than once a month (usually 10x per year), and usually only reactively.
It sounds like your department is using SWAT correctly. PG County is obviously a lot bigger in population and department size, but if they used their team(s) as intented, their usage probably wouldn't be that much higher than yours.
