    A personable police dispatcher convinced a barricaded Dumont man to surrender after a SWAT team and police from multiple departments converged on his block, authorities said. Officers from Dumont initially responded to the First Street home following a 911 call from the 33-year-old First Street resident late Tuesday morning, Police Chief Brian Joyce said. The caller asked for a SWAT team and the FBI, saying that he wanted to “show them something,” the chief said. The man wouldn’t say exactly what that was, then refused to come out, Joyce said. As a result, he said, the dead-ended street was temporarily closed off as Bergen County Regional SWAT Team members and police from Cresskill and New Milford joined their Dumont colleagues at the scene. Dumont Police Dispatcher Jonathan Byrd kept the man on the line throughout the ordeal, eventually convincing him to come out after a standoff that lasted a little over 20 minutes, the chief said. He was taken to Bergen New Bridge Medical Center in Paramus for an evaluation and wasn’t facing any charges, Joyce said. Byrd has been...

    A troubled Cliffside Park man surrendered peacefully after a disturbance at his home triggered a sizable law enforcement response. The 37-year-old resident, who authorities said has a history of emotional trouble, began breaking windows in his Washington Avenue home around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, neighbors said. No one answered the door, so police checked a neighbor's Ring and saw the man going inside his house, they said. Members of a Bergen County Regional SWAT team, a tactical Fort Lee police team and officers from Edgewater, Fairview and Ridgefield joined their Cliffside Park colleagues at the scene. An ambulance remained on standby. Police eventually talked with his mother, who lives nearby and brought a key to the house.

Deputy Police Chief Vincent Capano confirmed the incident while noting that the troubled resident "wasn't a threat to police, just to his own property." The man was taken to Bergen New...
    Even as outrage boils over the police response during the elementary school massacre in Texas this week, a 2019 video shows the Uvalde SWAT team conducting a successful breach — during a demo performance at an opening ceremony. Over the past several days,  disturbing revelations have resulted in heavy outcry over the response. Many of those revelations came from a pair of wild press conferences Texas law enforcement officials held to update reporters on the investigation into the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas that claimed the lives of 19 children and two adults. At the first presser, police didn’t have much information to give to frustrated reporters, and much of what they did say was then contradicted by revelations at the second press conference. Much of the outrage stems from the hourlong gap between when the police got to the school and when the classroom was finally breached and the suspect was killed. During that gap, some parents were handcuffed and tased when, after pleading with the cops to do something, tried to rush into the school to save their...
    Family members place flowers at a memorial outside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. May 26, 2022. The timeline of events in the Robb Elementary School mass shooting was horrific from the beginning. At 11 AM on Tuesday morning, the shooter logged on to Facebook, where he posted a now-removed message announcing that he was going to kill his grandmother. He followed this up a short while later with a second post saying: “I shot my grandmother.” At around 11:15, he posted again, saying: “I am going to shoot an elementary school.” At 11:30, someone called the police to report that a man had crashed a gray Ford pickup into a wall near Robb Elementary School. Within the next two minutes, a school safety officer “engaged” with the shooter, who was carrying a rifle and wearing a “tactical vest” filled with ammunition. Police arrived on the scene, and two officers exchanged fire with the shooter. Those two officers were injured in this exchange. At some point during these confrontations, the shooter entered the school, proceeded down multiple hallways, and entered a classroom. He shut the door, locked it, and began killing...
    The latest in a growing number of "swatting" incidents unnecessarily brought a squadron of police and tactical team members to an otherwise quiet Maywood neighborhood just off Route 17. A phony caller told police he had just shot his wife twice in the chest and was holding his neighbor at gunpoint after finding them having an affair shortly before 3 p.m. Sunday, Maywood Police Chief Terence R. Kenny said. Borough police converged on West Magnolia Avenue with their colleagues from Rochelle Park. A Bergen County Regional SWAT team was summoned. Police got the shocked residents out unharmed, cleared the residence and were gone a short time later. "Swatting," as it's called, peaked nationwide about five or six years ago before subsiding somewhat. Incidents have increased dramatically over the past year or so, however – happening with regularity, for instance, at Hackensack High School. Swatting exacts a toll on innocent residents, which is usually the intent. Often public figures and celebrities are targets. Sometimes it's simply an effort to tie up law enforcement, authorities say. Deploying SWAT teams and additional personnel...

    As members of the Los Angeles Police Department’s SWAT team prepared to confront an armed suspect who had holed up in a downtown apartment building earlier this month, one of the highly trained officers offered a comment to the others. “Happy hunting,” he said. The suspect was subsequently killed by gunfire from two other SWAT officers. Their supervisors later discovered the remark while reviewing video of the incident from cameras worn by officers at the scene. LAPD Chief Michel Moore confirmed the officer’s comment, telling The Times the officer has been removed from the field pending the outcome of an investigation. Moore declined to name the officer, citing state privacy laws for police. “It’s a disturbing remark,” the chief said. “Gallows humor or otherwise, it doesn’t have a place.” The officer made the remark on the morning of May 3, as officers responded to the 100 block of West 5th Street, where 54-year-old Leron James was in a fifth-floor apartment with a handgun. Police say James fired down on officers from a window and the officers returned fire, killing him....

    A member of a SWAT Team who shot and killed Amir Locke during a raid on a residence will not face charges, according to Attorney General Keith Ellison (D) and Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman. “Amir Locke’s life mattered,” Ellison and Freeman said Wednesday in a joint statement. “He was a young man with plans to move to Dallas, where he would be closer to his mom and – he hoped – build a career as a hip-hop artist, following in the musical steps of his father.” Body-worn camera footage supported a press release issued by the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) after the shooting, which noted that Locke drew a gun on Officer Mark Hanneman as Hanneman approached. “At approximately 6:48 a.m., the Minneapolis Police SWAT Team was executing a warrant for the Saint Paul Police Department Homicide unit on the 1100 block of Marquette Ave. South,” the release said. “Officers gained entry to the target apartment on the seventh floor, loudly and repeatedly announced their presence, crossed the threshold of the apartment, and advanced with continued loud announcements of...
