Roles of the Special Support Group

Diversification of the role of the Special Support Group

Current Situation

The SSG is paramilitary wing primarily concerned with policing public situations. However, with the current policing demands, the SSG continues to provide support to stations in some parts of the country. They are deployed along borders to combat cross border crime including stock theft, which has been a menace over years. The role of SSG has been deployed and diversified to include the following sections; Dog, Scuba Diving, Mounted, Surveillance Teams, Crime Investigation and many others.

As the sophistication in crime increases, we intend to diversify the role of SSG further in order to increase their capacity in dealing with crime, which is our core business. They will effectively carry out other varying police duties.  The Police service is intend to include tracker dogs, effect Mounted Section to assist in patrols, co-ordinate Surveillance Teams and provide training on the diversified roles like scene attendance and management.
