The Special Tactical Squad (Abbreviation: STS; Chinese: 特別戰術小隊, nicknamed Elite Team) is an elite paramilitary task force of the Hong Kong Police Force, being a sub-division of the Police Tactical Unit (PTU). In order to handle Occupy Central, a task force was established in late June 2014, assuring a smooth progress of Riot control. From it's establishment, it was called as Removal Team internally in the police force. As Occupy Central had become the 2014 Hong Kong protests, the Removal Team got exposure in the press. On 30 Nov 2014, the Chief superintendent of the Police Tactical Unit officially named it as the Special Tactical Squad.
