Duties of Crime Police Administration are as follows:
The Unit is organized in accordance with the European standards for Special Police Units, so that its structure and unit strength provide quality training and high operability level in performing certain tasks.
Everybody who wishes to become a member of Special Anti-Terrorist Unit has to go through rigorous and difficult selective training. The contest for accepting new candidates depends on the needs of the Unit and available job posts. Training of future members is based on the experiences of home and foreign specialized units and is harmonized with the universally accepted world standards and trends. In accordance with the strictly purposeful needs, the aim of Special Anti-Terrorist Unit training is to professionally train, drill, and prepare all the members of the operational unit both physically and mentally to successfully perform the most complex and delicate tasks in all situations and in every moment.
Ever since it was established to this day, the Special Anti-Terrorist Unit has been continuously developed and modernised and the process can be divided into three stages:
´┐Ż First stage (from 1992 to 1995);
´┐Ż Second stage (from 1995 to 2001);
´┐Ż Third stage (from 2001 to today)
With the outbreak of war conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the members of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of the Interior divided based on their ethnicity, so on 4 April 1992, the Police Unit for Special Actions was also divided, and in the second half of 1992, the Special Police Brigade was formed. In the period of war conflicts, from 1992 to 1994, nine units were formed with brigade command stationed in the village of Janja, BIH. Formation structure was as follows: Command, I ´┐Ż Pale division, II ´┐Ż ´┐Żekovi´┐Żi division, III ´┐Ż Trebinje division, IV ´┐Ż Bijeljina division, V ´┐Ż Doboj division, VI - Banja Luka division, VII ´┐Ż Prijedor division, VIII ´┐Ż Ilid´┐Ża division, and IX ´┐Ż Fo´┐Ża division. During the war, the Special Police Brigade had 1,500 members, and 144 of them gave their lives for the Republic of Srpska and 400 members were injured. On multiple occasions, the Unit was decorated with the orders of Petar Mrkonji´┐Ż, Nemanji´┐Żi, the First of Order of Njego´┐Ż, and the order of Merits for the People. Certain number of Unit members was decorated with the orders of Milo´┐Ż Obili´┐Ż and Milan Tepi´┐Ż and other decorations.
From 1995 to 2001, the whole Brigade completely changed under detailed monitoring of international organisations, primarily IPTF. When Dayton Peace Agreement was signed, and since its Annex 1B provided that special formations had to be disbanded and retreated to bases/barracks, the Unit changed its name into Anti-Terrorist Actions Police Brigade. The Annex 11 to Dayton Peace Agreement provided that members had to go through training under control of international police ´┐Ż IPTF. After reorganisation in 1998, the Unit got a new name ´┐Ż Specialised Police Service with the Command in Janja, near Bijeljina, divisions in Prijedor and Ilid´┐Ża were disbanded, and divisions in Trebinje and Fo´┐Ża were integrated with the base on Tjenti´┐Żte. Other divisions were transformed into specialised teams. After the reorganisation 1999/2000, the Specialised Police Service was dislocated from Janja to Banja Luka. All divisions were disbanded with exception to those in Janja and Banja Luka. The Specialised Team was located in Banja Luka and transformed into Anti-Terrorist Team.
In 2001, the division Janja was disbanded, and in Rakova´┐Żke Bare base, near Banja Luka, the Specialised Police Service continued their activities, and parts of it were Anti-Terrorist Team, Specialised Team and Mechanised Team. In 2004, the Service changed its name into Special Police Unit. On 8 August 2016, when the Rulebook on internal organisation and systematisation of job posts in the Republic of Srpska Ministry of Interior entered into force, the Unit changed its name into Special Anti-Terrorist Unit. Since the establishment of the Police Brigade in 1992 until today, the duty of Commander was performed by the following people: 1. Milenko Kari´┐Żik (1992-1993); 2. Goran Sari´┐Ż (1993-1997); 3.

'LET'S PREVENT PEER VIOLENCE' CAMPAIGN
Having in mind that prevention, detection and countering violence among children and young people are extremely important segments of police activities, the members of the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Srpska, in October 2011, realized a prevention campaign called 'Let's prevent peer violence'. The basic aims of this campaign are as follows:
1. Prevention of new cases of violence among children and young people;
2. Conducting promotional activities and organizing public forums and round tables with the aim of raising public awareness on the necessity of preventing peer violence.
Within the first aim, the organizational units of the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Srpska intensified the realization of the project 'School police officer', by conducting planned everyday activities of community policing officers, sector leaders, members of police whose competence is community policing, executive employees as well as all other police officers. As a result, while implementing the campaign, contacts and communication with directors and educators working at educational institutions, as well as parents and students have been improved in order to upgrade mutual trust, identify real problems and individuals who cause conflicts among student population and undertake measures and activities that would help preventing the escalation of peer violence. Special attention was also dedicated to peer violence outside school, when students are not under the supervision of their parents or teachers. Related to this, in October, all police stations realize the following measures and activities aimed at:
- Countering distribution and abuse of narcotic substances among young people (narcotics, alcohol drinks, tobacco products);
- - Denying access and participation of minors in games of chance and similar gambling games (for example, in betting shops).
Within the realization of the listed activities, in October, all public security centers and police stations organize public distribution of promotion material called 'Let's prevent peer violence´┐Ż, and, in cooperation with the competent government, local and non-governmental institutions and organizations, initiate and participate in the realization of public forums and round tables with the topic of peer violence.
Within the campaign 'Let's prevent peer violence', conducted by the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Srpska, the round table on the topic 'Peer violence and violence against children and media' was held in Banjaluka yesterday. It was organized by the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Srpska together with Ombudsman for children of the Republic of Srpska, Gender Center of the Government of the Republic of Srpska Government and 'Zdravo da ste' Association.
Director of the Police of the Republic of Srpska, Mr. Gojko Vasi´┐Ż said that statistics show decrease in the number of criminal offences related to peer violence ´┐Ż two years ago, there were 27 of these cases registered; last year, there were 14 of them, and this year, there are 6 cases registered so far. When it comes to juvenile delinquency, director Vasi´┐Ż said that, this year, the number of registered minors was smaller compared to the previous year, but that it did not have greater significance, because in the last 10 years, these records are approximately the same and that they vary from time to time. 'It is important that all segments of the society function properly,that there are prevention acitivities and that there are mechanisms to prevent the violent behaviour turning into a habit', director Vasi´┐Ż pointed out and added that police, within their regular activities, pay great attention to the juvenile delinquency. Police director Vasi´┐Ż explained that the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Srpska, within the realization of 'School police officer' activities, educational lectures and doors open days, was trying to create pre-conditions for the children to get familiarized with the police and thus gain trust in the police through varoious activities of working with the youth and children.
Ms. Nada Grahovac, Ombudsman for children of the Republic of Srpska, stated for the press before the Round table meeting began, that media have a really important role in promoting and protection of children's rights and raising social awareness on violation of those rights, since they often point to the violation of children's rights. She added that sensationalist reporting, the invasion of child and family privacy, still points to the fact that the public right to obtain information is above children's rights. 'The manner of reporting should not additionally hurt the child. One should think about how the published news is going to affect the child who, after everything that happened to them, is supposed to meet the environment, school and peers'', Ms. Grahovac pointed out. She added that media have to ensure the positive content on children and for children who, according to the research, spend 26.5 hours a week in front of television, and only half an hour talking to their parents. 'From this, one can see the influence of the media on children growing up and why it is necessary to learn on good examples of children, parents and teachers', Ms. Grahovac said and added that laws on media still have not recognized children's right on protection adequately.
The president of the Association of high school directors, Mr. Predrag Damjanovi´┐Ż said that schools give their best to minimize the problem of peer violence. 'Almost all schools are qualified, have psychologists employed, social workers and educators, so we can conduct prevention activities. One should not expect that schools can solve all the issues on their own, because, since without systemic approach, strategies and strategic fight, one can hardly do anything on their own', Mr. Damjanovi´┐Ż said.
