Special police units[edit]

SBPOK[edit]

The Counter-Organized Crime Service (SBPOK), was a stable structure out of the police service (Public Security Sector) that reported directly to minister, as the only operational police unit reporting directly at the political level.[clarification needed] The intention was to recruit some of the best and most experienced Serbian investigators to SBPOK. They are regarded as the best anti-organized crime unit in eastern and southern Europe.[citation needed]
