Pasco police released these photos Tuesday, from an exercise last Thursday at the Pasco Bus Barn.

Members of the department along with the Tri-Cities Regional SWAT team spent the day honing their skills for bus hostage rescues. Whether it's a school or transit bus, the SWAT team prepares for all kinds of contingencies.

Praying nothing like this ever happens, but it's good to know they're prepared. Pasco police said the team got to tear up an old retired Pasco school bus in the process.
