„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.

Tip of the Spear

The exceptional effectiveness is precisely the consequence of the myriad of specifics of these formations: as smaller in strength they are, as a rule, superbly mobile, being the prerequisite for a quick crisis response, while the special training, equipment and high morale of the personnel are the cornerstone of their reliability and determination in the execution of the most complex tasks.

An effective counteraction of every security threat at a tactical level, requires, above all, a high-quality intelligence support.
Civitas viri sunt, non moenia.

Moreover, the compactness of the personnel, plethora of specialists knowledge, skills and resources give these formations a certain degree of field independence and operational improvisation, which is very important, deeming that modern crisis can be volatile.
