Serbia: ICITAP Pays Tribute to Country’s Premier Counterterrorism Agency

December 18, 2019

On December 18, ICITAP staff and the U.S. embassy’s representatives from the Regional Security Office and the Political Section attended the 41th anniversary ceremony of Serbia’s Special Antiterrorism Unit (SAJ). ICITAP has historically assisted the SAJ in both training and equipment donations. In 2018, ICITAP and SAJ co-sponsored the sixth Hostage Rescue and Combating Terrorism exercise, when international counterterrorism tactical operatives received training in hostage rescue, police tactics and the regional response to terrorism, with input from the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team on strategy and tactics. SAJ used this opportunity to award its retired commanders and active officers who contributed to SAJ’s success over the years. ICITAP provides assistance to SAJ through the coordination and support of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
