STF benchmarks its 40th year…

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the Police Special Task Force, the elite police force of Sri Lanka (1).

Here is a look at the background of this special group that played a crucial role in preventing terrorist strikes and preserving the calm.

The development of terrorist activities in the North and East at the beginning of the 1980s forced the Police to deal with armed attacks carried out by the terrorists while performing their responsibilities.

Police officers were killed during the terrorist attacks, which also resulted in attacks on police stations and VIPP assassinations.
