MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minneapolis SWAT Team is getting national recognition this week.

Eight officers headed down to Oklahoma in October and took part in a three-day competition.

They went head-to-head against 23 other teams from all over the country in various situations.

In the end, scores were very close, but Minneapolis ended up winning over all other teams from the U.S.

They finished second overall, losing only to a team from Canada.

It was the second year the Minneapolis SWAT Team has competed.
