SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego Police Department's SWAT team will be getting an upgrade when it comes to guns, and gear Tuesday.
A local group of concerned residents is making a big donation to help local SWAT officers update their weapons.
Citizens for SWAT raises funds from community sponsors to provide the SWAT teams with the most updated and effective gear and equipment.
The committee has received funding from more than 70 companies in San Diego. Last year's funding priority was new weapons, which will replace outdated weapons that are nearly 20 years old.
