For me these cost analysts have never seems to be a valid argument. Taxpayers would be paying that $3600 even if there was no raid. Those nine cops in your example will be getting paid no matter what they were doing, be it kicking down the wrong door or giving out tickets for loitering.
The idea that money would be saved somehow by not doing a raid is bogus. Its going to be spent anyway.

Not if they are working OT. Some high risk warrant LEOs are not always SWAT. They are called in.

Plus, if you barge in, you get to plain-view search the place while pretending to make a protective sweep for officer safety. You know, look in every closet in every room and under every bed, the basement, the attic, every place a person could hide. See, if you can get in a protective sweep, your fishing expedition might turn up something arrestable.
And they'll even look in places a person couldn't hide... like a gym bag or CD case.
