The Special Intervention Unit

The PET Special Intervention Unit (AKS) is a specially trained unit tasked with maintaining the operational counter-terrorist response capacity. It is the task of this unit to help fight terrorism and serious organised crime and to provide sound options for the police to resolve complex intervention assignments.

AKS assignments comprise hostage rescue, counter-terrorist efforts, high-risk arrests and complex intervention assignments. In certain situations, the tasks are solved in close co-operation with units from the Danish Armed Forces, assisting with both personnel and equipment.
