jump-out squad
 n.— «U.S. District Court Gerhard A. Gesell agreed to seal parts of the 11-page typewritten manual that contained specific instructions, such as how many uniformed officers should be present as a backup and how many officers should be used in a “jump-out” squad. Earlier this month Assistant Police Chief Isaac Fulwood Jr. began an investigation of the “jump-out” tactic, which was being used by police to search large groups of people without probable cause.» —“U.S. Judge Seals Parts Of Clean Sweep Manual” by Nancy Lewis Washington Post Oct. 31, 1986.
