3. BOPE - Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais - Brazil

The Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais (BOPE) are the top cops in Rio, Brazil’s beautiful, but often violent seaside paradise. BOPE are considered an urban warfare unit, tasked with policing the city’s sprawling shanty towns – the favelas – where gangsterism and drug violence is rife. Their operations are often controversial and they have been accused of executing suspects among other abuses of their considerable power.
The BOPE won the respect of foreign military units to act in these urban environments of high difficulty, and has created new techniques that have been adopted even by U.S. police forces ( despite the controversies generated by charges of using violence ) .
The all black uniforms, masks, skull and crossed pistols badges and a training song that begins, “”Man in black, what is your mission? To invade the favela and leave the bodies on the ground” leaves little doubt that BOPE mean business.
Their duties include policing prison riots, and in time of war they will be sent to the front lines.
The fallout rate is brutal. A recent commanded – called just 01 – reported that of a class of 100 applicants, only three made it onto the force. The final three days of the training involve staying constantly awake with almost no sustenance running mock missions. Finally they have to run up the daunting slope to the unit’s HQ fighting MMA-style almost all the way.

2. OMON - Russia

OMON (Russian: ОМОН—Отряд мобильный особого назначения, Otryad Mobilniy Osobogo Naznacheniya, Special Purpose Mobile Unit) is a generic name for the system of special units of Politsiya (police) within the Russian and earlier the Soviet MVD (Ministry of Internal Affairs).
OMON originated in 1979, when the first group was founded in preparation for the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, to ensure that there were no terrorist attacks like the Munich massacre during the 1972 Summer Olympics. Subsequently, the unit was utilized in emergencies such as high-risk arrests, hostage crises, as well as in response to acts of terrorism. The OMON detachments were often manned by former soldiers of the Soviet Army and veterans of the Soviet war in Afghanistan.
The OMON system itself is the successor of that group and was founded in November of 1987 as the Militsiya Squad of Special Assignment (Spetsnaz), with the commando duties largely taken over by the SOBR (dangerous criminals) and Vityaz (counter-terrorism) units of the MVD. The OMON units were initially used as the riot police used to control and stop demonstrations and hooliganism, as well as other emergency situations, but later became accustomed to a wider range of police operations, including cordon and street patrol actions, and even paramilitary and military-style operations.


SWAT ("Special Weapons And Tactics") is a commonly used proper name for law enforcement units, which use military-style light weapons and specialized tactics in high-risk operations that fall outside of the capabilities of regular, uniformed police. "SWAT" is commonly used internationally, as a colloquial, generic term for these units.
Their duties include: confronting heavily armed criminals; performing hostage rescue and counter-terrorism operations; high risk arrests; and entering armored or barricaded buildings. Such units are often equipped with specialized firearms including submachine guns, assault rifles, breaching shotguns, sniper rifles, riot control agents, and stun grenades. They have specialized equipment including heavy body armor, ballistic shields, entry tools, armored vehicles, advanced night vision optics, and motion detectors for covertly determining the positions of hostages or hostage takers, inside enclosed structures.
Some sources state that the first use of "SWAT" as an acronym for "Special Weapons and Tactics" was the Special Weapons and Tactics Squad established by the Philadelphia Police Department in 1964.
