Tanks are slow. Their swat vans get to the scene quicker. Plus, can you imagine the pandemonium if a tank came rolling down a public road? People would think WW3 started. Tanks are also more expensive to operate, it would be a bad financial decision for any police department to use them when they are not cost effective.
Also, tanks aren't effective in urban environments, which are the major area of operations for most SWAT-type teams. Armies, quite aside from police, have found armoured operations limited in urban and built-up areas. Armour is more suited to open countryside. It's worth noting too that tracked vehicles cause significant damage to tarmacadam and concrete roadways, and they generally need to be towed, usually behind a dedicated "tank transporter" to the required location- they are generally too slow, use too much fuel, and can suffer from mechanical problems if required to move long distances under their own power.
There are a variety of formal teams within the police force. Some of these include the canine unit, the SWAT team, police detective and criminal investigator, helicopter patrol, street crime and gang unit, as well as internal affairs.
Unlikely. As long as there are specially threatening criminals, special reaction police teams will be needed.

the swat was made because the police could not handle the amount of terorists .so they made the swat team . the swat was made to rescue hostages.
In a majority of cases, the salaries of SWAT members are the same as those of regular police officers.
To get a tank, get 5-star wanted rating. Then the police force, SWAT team, helicopters and army tanks will follow you. Get inside on of the tanks and enjoy your new vehicle. There are also some cheat codes to get it, but that's not fun.
SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) teams are usually made up of experienced officers with special skills that suit them to the unconventional activities of the teams. Since the starting salary for most medium-sized police departments is in the $40,000/yr. range, we could expect the more experienced officers of a SWAT unit to be making $60,000 and up, depending on the department, their rank, and time in service.

Police Quest SWAT 2 - 1998 VG was released on: USA: 30 June 1998
There are three levels of tactical teams in the FBI: the Hostage Rescue Team (HRT), the 11+ regional Enhanced SWAT Teams and the field office SWAT teams. The HRT is the national team and a full-time commitment. When they are not deployed, they are training. Every field office has a local SWAT team which is a part-time commitment in addition to the agent's normal investigative duties. The enhanced SWAT teams are somewhere in between, with more training and commitment than the local teams, but still not full time. The agents still have normal case duties.
SWAT officers first take police officer training, and then are specially trained as tactical officers.
