Training by the Janesville Police Department SWAT Team Tuesday may be a little more aggressive than usual.

Assistant Team Commander Sergeant Brian Vaughn says using a condemned home in the Mole-Sadler Subdivision will allow training to be more realistic, since officers won't have to worry about damaging the property. SWAT trains about 12 times a year, and Vaughn says the more authentic the training, the greater benefit in real life situations.

About 30 officers are expected to participate in the day long training.
