Because of HRT's training and experience abroad with fighting insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is the only civilian law enforcement tactical team in the U.S. capable of actually fighting an insurgency and one of the few in the entire world. HRT has a very high level of capability which allows it to perform low to moderate level tactical operations in non-permissible environments (i.e., war zones) overseas.
