Would being a sniper in SWAT for a long time be enough experience to be a sniper in the FBI HRT?

    Lacking any evidence to the contrary, I would say yes. The FBI might send you to the Army sniper school.

    Getting law enforcement officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. Becoming an FBI Special Agent is a very competitive process. Visit the FBI's website. Visit the websites of whatever law enforcement agencies that you might want to work for. Law enforcement agency websites often provide information about their applicant requirements, about how to apply, and about their hiring process.

    Getting a college degree is one of the best things that you can do. Forensic psychology might be a good major for you. Make sure to choose a school that is properly accredited, get the highest grade point average that you can, participate in a couple extracurricular activities, get a good internship, do some regular volunteer work, don't do anything illegal, and maintain a good reputation. Unless you have extensive SWAT training and experience or you happen to be fluent in a foreign language that the FBI considers critical, you would probably still have to have at least a few years of professional work experience as a detective or investigator or as a psychologist or something similar to be considered.
