During crises such as MH17 and Covid-19, special units are deployed on a large scale within the Police to coordinate. An SGBO, also known as Staff Large-Scale and Special Performance (SGBO), supports this. At the time of the corona crises, an SGBO PDC business was set up for the first time. The reason for this was to support the entire Police organization in these extremely changing circumstances. The SGBO operational management team was therefore ready day and night, seven days a week, with the aim of allowing the officers on the street to do their job properly.
But who were the people who participated within this SGBO? What is their story? How did they experience participating in the SGBO business management?
Commissioned by the Police Services Center, Bleck’s production team went in search of the story behind the SGBO. Together they made an internal documentary in which various perspectives are shown at the time of the Corona crisis. An interesting, but especially intense period in which man and power worked 24/7 to allow the police organization, but especially the officer on the street, to carry out his work.
