Any help would be appriciated. Thanks in advance.

The Special Action Force (SAF) in the main CT unit used for anti-terrorist operations. They also lend a hand to engage armed gangs (e.g. gun runners, drug smugglers, kidnappers) and against anti-government insurgents and terrorists (e.g. New People's Army and Abu Sayyaf Group).
These guys were influenced by the SAS CRW's success on the Iranian Embassy Siege and most members (I think first generation of SAF operatives) were tutored by the FBI's HRT, Israel's Yamam and France's RAID.

The Regional Mobile Group is something like the SAF, but these guys are like Rapid Reaction Forces deployed to assist regular police forces in case they..

1. They need help and SAF is not needed

2. Their stations/posts/areas of responsibilties gets under siege by the bad guys

Most cities in Metropolitan Manila and the other cities (Makati, San Juan, Quezon City, Pasay) have their own SWAT teams.

Armed Offenders Squads (AOS) were first established in 1964, after the fatal shooting of four police officers in incidents in Lower Hutt and Waitakere. There are now 17 squads, covering all main Cities.

AOS members are all volunteers. They must qualify at a rigorous national selection and induction course, and receive regular additional training in their districts. They are part-time, drawn from all branches of the Police, and operate on a call-out basis.

Specialist Search Group (SSG)
In 1984 SSG was formed to search for Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). It has since been used in all major security operations including the 1990 Commonwealth Games, CHOGM, APEC, royal and VIP tours.

The groupís primary role is to search for IEDs, other dangerous items and substances. Further chem/bio capabilities are being developed. The skills the group has acquired in that role are now being used in a variety of general searches.

In the UK every regional police force has "Armed response units" which are basically normal police cars and normal police officers until the call comes in involving firearms then the units unlock the weapon lockers in their cars.

There are also a view other speclist units like in London they have a unit called S019 which is basically a highly trained CT unit. There are a few pictures but not very good ones, like the SAS S019 don't like having their pictures taken.

Grenzschutzgruppe 9 (GSG9, "Border Patrol Group 9") is of course a world famous CT unit.
It belongs to the Bundesgrenzschutz (Federal Border Patrol) and reports to the Federal Interior Ministry.

In addition to this federal unit, each of the German states maintains one or more own special units called Sondereinsatzkommando (SEK, "Special Mission Group").
They belong to their respective state's police.

well every police force in the U.K has a armed unit atached to, but the met SO19 is the only armed police unit that has a specailized anti hostage unit known as SFO.
In addition to the 24-hour response provided by the ARV's the MPS also employs a number of Specialist Firearms Officers (SFO's) to provide an enhanced firearms capability to the MPS. These officers undergo advanced firearms training and are also available 24 hours a day.

Their role includes dealing with all pre-planned operations as well as providing the MPS with a hostage-rescue capability. Specialist Firearms Officers can be deployed at any firearms incident in the MPS subject to the authority of a senior officer. there are a few pictures on this website http://www.met.police.uk/so19/arv.htm however i cant work out how to upload them[/url]

OPP

The Emergency Response Team(E.R.T.) received official recognition in 1992, when the Ontario Provincial Police made a decision to incorporate a number of specialized emergency response units into one team.

O.P.P. officers volunteer for the positions and must meet specific criteria in order to qualify for selection. Among these are a high level of physical fitness, maturity, patience, motivation, proficiency in the use of firearms and demonstrated sound; judgement under stress.

E.R.T. team members receive specific training to prepare them for the following functions: search and rescue operations, search for physical evidence, crowd management at civil disturbances, riots, strikes,demonstrations, V.I.P. security and containment of situations such as hostage taking, barricaded persons, possible suicides and the execution of high risk warrants.

Currently, there are a total of 240 men and women who work in E.R.T. throughout Ontario. They are grouped into 15 teams that are deployed into six regions of the province.

The O.P.P. search and rescue program is recognized as having one of the premier search and rescue units in North America. The latest scientific data and equipment are utilized in the search of missing persons.

The Emergency Response teams are a valuable resource to the O.P.P. and the community. They provide a rapid, professional response to local emergencies whether a search for a lost child or responding to a natural disaster.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tactics and Rescue Unit - T.R.U.T.R.U. members are devoted to the safe resolution of high-risk incidents and the provision of expert tactical support services in specialized areas.

Some of the most serious threats to peace and order in Ontario often fall into the T.R.U. team's area of responsibility.

T.R.U. play a crucial role in providing support to patrol officers in extreme circumstances such as hostage taking, barricaded person, sniper incidents, search of an armed or dangerous fugitive, execution of a high risk warrant, and occurrences involving explosives, V.I.P. security and prisoner escort.

T.R.U is part of an integrated response to high risk incidents which also includes Incident Command, E.R.T., K-9, Technical Support Section and Crisis negotiators.

The T.R.U. Program is comprised of three full-time, 12 member teams based in Barrie, Kingston, and London. In order to be accepted in the program, one must be a first class provincial constable, be in above-average physical condition, demonstrate sound judgement under stress, be decisive and innovative, be proficient in the use of firearms and be able to work well in a team environment.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Provincial Emergency Response Team - P.E.R.T.
The Provincial Emergency Response Team was formed as a result of the consequences stemming from the terrorist events of September 11, 2001. P.E.R.T. was developed with an objective to counter terrorist threats through the provision of a rapid mobilization capability to address acts of terrorism in Ontario that exceed the O.P.P.ís current capacity both locally, regionally and provincially. The potential urgency and magnitude of a terrorist attack in the Province emphasizes the need to ensure that specially trained members be prepared to ensure domestic security within the Province. P.E.R.T. will work closely with other ministries, agencies and organizations to ensure a tightly knit relationship and process that will assist in protecting Ontarioís critical infrastructure sites should an emergency arise. P.E.R.T. also provides assistance to specialized O.P.P. units in countering terrorist threats and will assist the O.P.P., other agencies and municipalities in developing or defining that part of their program that relates to P.E.R.T.

P.E.R.T. also provides the O.P.P. with the ability to respond specifically to terrorist incidents in which there is a Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear (C.B.R.N.) threat.

P.E.R.T. members will be trained as Police Explosives Technicians through the Canadian Police College
All P.E.R.T. members will receive C.B.R.N. and
Weapons of Mass Destruction training at the Michigan
State Police Hazardous Materials Training Centre

P.E.R.T. will also provide the O.P.P. and the Province with Heavy Urban Search and Rescue (H.U.S.A.R.) response to emergencies as a result of terrorist activities or natural disasters.

P.E.R.T. members will receive specialized training in Heavy Urban Search and Rescue at Texas A&M University
As well P.E.R.T. will be involved in continuous training with the Toronto Fire Service H.U.S.A.R. team and the Office of the Fire Marshall of Ontario
P.E.R.T. has two canine handlers with general service dogs. These dogs will also be specially trained for H.U.S.A.R. environments. They will also be capable of conducting live and cadaver searches.


P.E.R.T. consists of 32 O.P.P. members centrally located in the Town of Caledon. Every P.E.R.T. member must first complete the 6-week Emergency Response Team course where they will be trained in:

Public order
Search and rescue (S.A.R.)
Containment
Evidence search
V.I.P. security
Canine back up
Prisoner escorts



RCMP

OVERVIEW

The increasing threat of armed terrorist violence in the mid-1970s brought about the need for changes to law enforcement service. Well organized and heavily armed criminal groups underlined the need for an equally sophisticated and strategic police response.

In 1976, the RCMP formed the first Emergency Response Team (ERT) to address the growing threat of critical incidents with levels of danger beyond normal expectations and exceeding the safe operation limits of regular police personnel.

Prior to this, a Hostage and Rescue Patrol (HARP) team fulfilled the role, although its purpose was strictly one of containment. Since then, ERTs have borrowed and modified tactics used in SWAT and military operations and combined them with police techniques to create an all-purpose and highly adaptable law enforcement team.

MANDATE

To provide tactical support against potential armed resistance if a situation deteriorates to the point that loss of life is imminent and where all other realistic attempts at resolution have failed.
To preserve the lives of hostages, team members, and perpetrators.
To resolve all incidents peacefully with minimum force.
DESCRIPTION

An ERT consists of members trained extensively in tactical procedures and weaponry. The highly specialized skills of ERT members prepare them for resolving matters involving armed aggression and resistance, such as:


Serious Crime arrest warrants
Hostage rescue
Armed barricaded subjects
Protective duties
Team members must learn to move with precision in dynamic and stealth situations, during the day or night. They must adapt to all types of terrain, locations, and weather conditions, penetrate barricades and strongholds, gather and preserve evidence, and, if necessary, engage in close-quarter combat, evacuate hostages, and capture offenders.

Depending on the circumstances, ERTs work as a separate unit or in cooperation with other RCMP special operations units including Tactical Troops, Proceeds of Crime, Drug Enforcement, Police Service Dog Teams, and Protective Services. ERTs also assist Government of Canada departments, such as Canada Customs and Revenue, and join forces and share resources with other local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SELECTION CRITERIA

ERT activity requires strength and endurance to cope with the physical demands and the physiological stress of high-risk police activity. Each candidate must, therefore:

Be a regular member with a minimum three years of operational experience;
Be mature, responsible, and of stable character;
Be in above average physical condition to meet and maintain high fitness standard;
Have displayed an aptitude for shooting;
Train on a ongoing basis to improve tactical and weapons skills;
Demonstrate, through police experience, good judgment and self-control under extraordinary stress;
Possess excellent eyesight, preferably without eyeglasses.

TRAINING

Physical

ERT training focuses on cardiovascular and respiratory development, physical strength and endurance, and flexibility. Even after successfully qualifying for an ERT, the RCMP tests the fitness performance of squad members twice a year. Those who fail to meet the minimum standard must leave the team.

Situational

In addition to grueling physical training, members learn and continually practice skills such as pre-incident contingency planning, rappelling, silent communications, handling diversion devices, chemical agents and contaminants, camouflage, cover and concealment, tracking and searching, urban and rural stalk, and ammunition and ballistics.

SPECIAL ROLES

Assaulter



Newly-engaged ERT members must first learn the concepts and techniques of an assaulter before taking on more specialized roles.The Assaulter must learn and develop tactical deployment skills to neutralize all types of major crime incidents:

Weapons training: 9mm pistol; H&K MP5; M16 Assault rifle
Close-quarter shooting
Use of specialized breaching tools
Diversion devices
Explosive entry tactics
Aircraft and tubular assault
High-risk vehicle assault, dynamic and stealth
Building assault
High-risk operational planning: immediate action,stronghold, open-air, ambush
Bush training
Camouflage
Stealth movement
Dynamic entry
Chemical weapons
Communications
Sniper / Observer



The ERT Sniper / Observer must develop skills in addition to those of other team members, including:

Weapon safety
Ballistics: weight, velocity, energy, trajectory
Marksmanship: positioning, holding, pointing, aligning
Position: ****e, sitting, kneeling, standing,
Weather / light conditions: sub-zero, snow, rain, wind, fog, cloud, heat, dawn, day, dusk, darkness
Cover and concealment, movement without detection
Target indication: arc and field of fire
Distance judgment
Image intensifiers
Map and compass
Communications
Helicopter Rappel Master


The ERT Rappel Master acts as the communication link between the flight crew and operational units aboard the aircraft and on the ground. The rappel master is responsible for the safe, swift, and efficient deployment of the assault group using signals to direct movement:

Ropecraft
Rappel anchor system
Fastrope
Telecommunications
Equipment assembly and installation
Tactical deployment methods
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Royal Newfoundland Constabulary

The Tactical Rescue Unit

The Tactical Rescue Unit (TRU) is one of the specialized units in the RNC. It consists of highly motivated and highly trained police officers. These Constables train rigorously and spend hours perfecting their shooting, running, repelling, and various other intensive skills.

The TRU team is our name for what most people call a SWAT Team (U.S.) They respond to serious calls such as hostage takings, barricaded persons, suicidal persons, armed robberies, and any other task that is given to them. Their job is truly high risk and very dangerous work.

Police Officers must go through a gruelling process to be chosen to be a member of TRU. They are in top notch physical shape and train one week per month. The TRU is constantly being utilized and are ready to respond to any location in the RNC's jurisdiction, including Corner Brook and Labrador.

Here are some photos and video of TRU member training at RNC HQ firearms range. Scroll down to see them all.

Toronto PD ETF

Situated within an established suburban neighborhood, there is a balancing act between the need to have a number of high-security functions and the desire to make a police building which serves the public.

The two-story building, which is clad in white dolomite block with a blue sloped metal roof, houses the training facilities which are the heart of the operation. These include meeting rooms, two shooting ranges, and a rappelling tower. Also at the centre of the main block is a 2000 square foot exercise room in which each member of the force trains for one hour on each day of duty.

The 35,000 square foot complex was completed in December of 1989 at a ready-for-use cost of approximately $5,000,000.

History

The Emergency Task Force was created in 1965. Officers worked out of a downtown station and their primary function was to deal with strike situations. Over the years the unit has expanded to 70 members who work from a large modern and central facility.

Just want to ask if the Irish Garda Emergency Response Unit and the British SO19 Firearms Unit have snipers and/or bomb experts, thanks.

There were pictures of police marksmen, presumably from SO19, taken during the seige at Hackney, London, a couple of years ago.

Here's one that I found:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/media/images/38677000/jpg/_38677603_1marksmenpa300.jpg

I think so, but I don't think they call them snipers. Maybe marksmen or sharpshooters. I'm fairly sure that the guy in the picture is from SO19.



You must mean the SAS CRW then? Ok then.

I don't know about that, but whenever I've seen bomb disposal people either on the news or in real life they've always been from the army (and I guess the RN and RAF have thier own EOD types too).

I did a google search just now for uk bomb disposal. It found this page:

http://www.ukemergency4.f9.co.uk/bombdisposal1.htm

There's an RAF bomb disposal truck. It also claims that the metropolitan police have a few ex-military bomb disposal officers. Might be usefull for you...
