In looking back on Lt. Winfield’s 27 year career, he’s most proud of being a member of the SWAT team with his favorite quote being “In the realm of tactical operations, no one stands alone; for it is the team which increases the probability of success in imminent danger. Though the team is the sum of its individual parts, individual acts of valor are wasted through uncoordinated execution.”
