My roommate is thinking about joining SWAT, but he has Crohn's disease and depression. Could he still become a part of SWAT?

The first thing you need to do is go to the introductions thread and post an introduction as is customary on this site.


Is your friend on the job??? With Crohn's and depression it is highly doubtful he would pass the basic medical exam. You don't join a special unit you are selected for it, you have to start out at the bottom and earn a place in the selection process.

I believe it was PSD that once said, "SWAT SWAT everyone wants to be SWAT."


Beyond that, I don't have an answer to your question.  It was pretty much covered by mlar

There is definately alot of hollywood influence on the "i want to be SWAT" types...its hero worship for sure. Just like the kids who want to be Green Berets, Rangers, SEALs...etc etc

I am not a doctor but I would go ahead and say no. SWAT is very demanding both physical and mentally as is. The symptoms of Crohns disease would be to unpredictable for him to be on call all the time. And the depression thing is not a plus.

I cant say I wont ever do SWAT cause I may become interested some day, but its the farthest thing from my mind right now. More important stuff to worry about as a rookie.



Spoken like a professional.


I concentrated on my primary patrol responsibilities for 4 years before I went tactical.

Dude!  the Crohn's disease would keep him out alone.  I hear that is a pretty bad disease... but having depression?? Are you seriously asking if he/she can become part of SWAT?

In all seriousness please THINK before asking such questions..99 times out of 100 if you have a medical condition that affects your day to day life you can't become a Police Officer let alone being able to advance through the ranks and into special fields such as SWAT,K9 and etc..

Zombies already???


Dude...


 


Your friend? Everyone always says- my friend- but they really mean themselves...


Look I'm a dreamer- and I hate to crush other peoples dreams. BUT I know for a fact that I don't want a person on my team with a loaded weapon, inches away from any part of my body, having any sort of depression or possible problems. So im going to side with most other people here. Unless you find a cure for Chrons and depression then its a negative there ghost rider...

Your roomate doesn't have the motivation to join SWAT. I know this because he has you requesting this information for him. This also shows lack of character and heart.

I have been accused of being cynical and anti social among other colorful adjectives.  Can I get into customer service?  Can I be a SRO, NRO, POC for the media?
