Gendarmery (Serbia)

The Gendarmery, in Serbian ┼Żandarmerija , is an armed police force subordinate to Serbia's Ministry of Internal Affairs. The Serbian gendarmery was established in 2001. A previous Serbian Gendarmery existed from 1860 until 1920. The Special Operations Unit (JSO) and Special Police Unit (PJP) were later attached to the gendarmery. The gendarmery's duties are both civilian and military, including securing the 'Ground Safety Zone' along the administrative line with Kosovo and providing disaster rescue teams (see below).
