Special Security Division
The Special Security Division is a 2-star Pakistan Army led command raised in September 2016, prompted by major concerns over how to protect the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) from serious internal and external threats. 
It consists of civil-military units with (9) Pakistan Army infantry battalions and (6) 'Civil Armed Forces' 'wings' giving a total of 13,700 personnel. The Interior Ministry under Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan funds the civil component, composed of Ranger and Frontier Corps units. 
The SSD is the land-based complement and partner to CPEC's maritime security command, Task-Force 88 raised in December 2016 led by the Pakistan Navy and which includes the Maritime Security Agency and Pakistan Marines. 
China expressed its satisfaction with these security arrangements in the sixth Joint Cooperation Committee meeting.
