The Special Tactics and Rescue (STAR, Chinese: 警察特工队) is the elite Police Tactical Unit of the Singapore Police Force. Its official task is to provide the Singapore police with a tactical armed-response capability, and its motto is “Vigilance, Valour, Victory”.
The Special Counter-Terrorist Unit (Greek: Ε.Κ.Α.Μ. – Ειδική Κατασταλτική Αντιτρομοκρατική Μονάδα, Eidiki Katastaltiki Antitromokratiki Monada) is the Greek counter-terrorism unit of the Hellenic Police. It is the most distinguished part of the Hellenic Police. It was formed in 1978 when the first two anti-terrorist units were created within the two Police Divisions that existed then (Hellenic Gendarmerie and the Cities Police) and in 1984 were united into a single body, the Hellenic Police. In the beginning the Unit had only 150 men but when Greece became the host country of the Olympic Games of 2004 their number increased to 200 after reassessing the needs for the magnitude of the event.
