Other U.S. government departments and agencies have militarized law enforcement and SWAT groups set up to cope with emergencies, attacks, hostage situations, and other contingencies. Tactical gear and special operations training are not solely restricted to the ranks of the U.S. military. Despite the fact that not everyone who appears to be a “operator” actually is one, it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to learn that the Department of Energy has its own special task force that truly means business. Established in the 1950s, the DOE’s anti-nuclear terrorism team looked like menacing black ops commandos straight out of a video game during the late stages of the Cold War. The DOE has a large force of highly trained fighters for emergency situations, as they are the security teams charged with protecting the country’s nuclear weapons and reactors, and specifically what the department calls “Category I special nuclear material.”
