GERMANY: Federal Terrorism Task Force to Expand

Germany will expand their special police task force, GSG 9, which specializes in dealing with terrorist attacks, and build a second GSG 9 base in Berlin to address an ongoing terrorist threat, specifically in Berlin, as it is Germany’s capital city. The goal of the GSG 9 expansion is to improve GSG 9’s ability to react quickly to an attack on Berlin. The government recognizes the challenge of their aim to hire 100 new GSG 9 members, as they raised the physical fitness standards, emphasizing efforts to increase the effectiveness of the GSG 9 task force.
