Police Militarization Conferences, Trainings & Expos

War Resister's League's police militarization campaign #NoSWATzone has been campaigning against SWAT-training and weapons expo Urban Shield for four years.

Find research below on a handful of the police trainings happening across the US, as well as info on how we are resisting them!
