With the increasing violent crimes and terrorist activities, the responsibilities of the SSU have increased considerably. The SSU is now playing active role in counterterrorism and other special operations. The operation against Lyari Gang War Criminals and banned terrorist outfits in Karachi are some of the examples of SSU’s contributions toward security and peace. The involvement of the SSU in ongoing counterterrorism operations and other policing activities has significantly strengthened the scope and operational capability of the Sindh Police. In addition, the SSU provides security cover for special events, ceremonies and other important activities where the threat to the lives and properties of innocent citizens is high. The SSU is also an instrumental reinforcement for the rest of the Sindh Police in their war against terror and special operations. Whenever required, the SSU joins the activity with the best of its human and logistical resources to ensure success of the concerned operations. If asked for, the SSU also conducts risk assessment analysis, threat level assessments and security surveys to determine risks to particular personality and entities as well as recommend security measures.
