How to wrapped JSON Handler in Function

So I'm using this function to pass the JSON Value (Any Object) in other class but it's full of issues so I can't get it working

func getSWPeopleAPI() -> NSMutableArray {
    var JSON2: NSMutableArray
    Alamofire.request(.GET, "http://swapi.co/api/people/1").responseJSON { Response in
        if let JSON = Response.result.value{
            JSON2 = JSON as! NSMutableArray

    return JSON2

Do you have a suggestion on how can I achieve this to pass it to my ApiManagerClass and what data type is best use when dealing with JSON?

You are doing in a wrong way! JSON must have a type of NSDictionary.

func getSWPeopleAPI(strUrl: String, completionHandler: (NSDictionary?, NSError?) -> ()) -> (){

    Alamofire.request(.GET, strUrl).responseJSON { response in

        switch response.result {

        case .Success(let data):
            let json = data as? NSDictionary
            completionHandler(json, nil)
        case .Failure(let error):
            completionHandler(nil, error)

Here is the code with completion handler and error as specified!

How to Use:

postWebserviceWithURL(Url!) { (responseData, error) -> () in
