Special Police Unit 19 March 2021

On 8 and 9 September 2008 nine divers from the Special Unit of the General Police Directorate took part in a seven-day training course at the diving centre of the Special Police unit of the Croatian interior ministry in Mali Lošinj.


The purpose of the training was to refresh some of the theoretical and practical skills needed for the extremely demanding tasks performed by police divers in the specific conditions of open-water diving, and to acquire new skills.
