Here's a bit of WIKI info on the contest.
Love to be able to observe these competitions. Are they open to the public?

GSG-9 IS NOT a SWAT team they are the special forces unit of Germany's paramilitary national police force called the Bundespolizei. The World SWAT Competition should be for civilian police force SWAT type teams only.
A paramilitary police force cannot be compared with your average US law enforcement agency as the concept of civilian police forces like we have in the US simply does not exist outside the US, Canada, Australia, Western Europe, etc. Its like comparing the US Army's Military Police Corps to the security guards at the mall.
