Continuity mistake: During the bus scene TJ stops Montel from getting away by crashing the beige car into the cop car that Montel tried driving away in. When he does this the beige car drives into the intersection crashing into a blue car. Then the angle changes and shows the beige car undamaged but the blue car was damaged.
Continuity mistake: After the scene were the helicopter is shot down by the sniper we see a large piece of the helicopter (possibly a piece of the rotor) dislodge and get stuck in the side of an air vent. Then shot changes to show the copter crash into the street below. When the shot changes back to show the S.W.A.T members getting up there is a clear shot of the air vent with no piece of metal sticking out of it. (01:12:05)
Continuity mistake: During the verbal fight between Gamble and Street after the bank incident, Gamble grabs Street and slams his head into the mirror and you see glass in Street's hair from the reflection, but when the camera changes to a view of the back of Street's head, you see no glass.

Continuity mistake: Right before the team gets paged for the first time, you see one of the members having a glass of wine. After he takes a sip, you see his hand still near his mouth. The camera angle changes and his hand is no longer near his mouth. Camera angle changes again and his hand is back near his mouth.MCKD
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when S.W.A.T. gets to the bank by helicopter they are shown rappelling from it. In one shot they show them right under the landing gear and in the next shot you see them passing the landing gear again.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the SWAT team encounters the Lear jet on the 6th Street bridge , the limo that the SWAT team commandeered has multiple bullet holes along the driver's side. The direction of all the firepower encountered by the limo was from directly in front (the 2 parked cars and the jet). I assume the sideshots came from the "airport security" blockade at the entry to the 6th Street bridge but were edited from the final film.
Continuity mistake: When Street tells his partner that he's staying with the team, his partner walks up to him and pushes him back into the mirror above the sink. You see Street taking a few steps away from the sink and standing straight up. The camera angle changes and you now see Street sitting on the edge of the sink.MCKD
Continuity mistake: In the beginning when the SWAT team has been dropped on the roof, the helicopter also drop the ropes. From above we can see the ropes land at least ten feet away from the ventilation shaft. When it cuts to POV of one of the SWAT members we can see the rope lying right next to the shaft.
