„Position and Role of Special Forces Units in Security System”, Belgrade, 2019.

Police, military-police and military special forces units represent the fiercest element of the executive parts of a security system, standing agaist the most hazardous security threats[1] at a tactical level.

They can be, in general, defined as tactical units, smaller in strength, composed of the specially trained and equipped operational personnel, relatively independent in work, intended for the execution of the most complex tactical tasks from the public institution`s jurisdiction, under which is being organized — commonly ministries. Police units are, as a rule, operational under a ministry of internal affairs, less often military-police ones (the Gendarmerie of the Republic of Serbia, for instance), while military units operate, of course, under a ministry of defense.

The special forces capacities are, as a rule, particularly focused on fighting terrorism (including both counter-terrorism and anti-terrorism as two separated, but connected areas), organized crime and the relating hostage crisis, suspects high-risk arrests. Specially trained operators are often tasked with the VIP close protection (for example, the Military Police S/O Detachment Cobras specialists protect Chief of the General Staff of the Serbian Armed Forces) and important infrastructure protection, while their special training, gear and professionalism can be effectively used to provide professional assistance to other organizational, tactical formations (for instance, on the occasion of training, or joint engagements), along with rescuing citizens and property in cases of natural disasters.
