And even in the states seeing how fat some of their SWAT blokes are, I'm guessing their SEAL guys are a different calibre and it came to it (I'm thinking Mumbai style, which is much more possible in the states due to the availability of weapons) you'd want your best blokes. They don't interfere, the police just know they are there and can be used.
