After the first multi-party elections in 1990, the Republic of Croatia was faced with the violation and destabilization of the constitutional order by the rebelled Serbian population. As a response to such conditions, the Republic of Croatia commenced training and arming the only legal armed force – the police. In those conditions, on the 15th of March, the Sisak Police department founded the Special police force unit called "Osa". During their first year in action, the unit has immensely contributed towards the defense of Banovina. After the May of 1992, the Special police department assigned the unit on tasks throughout the country. Performing their tasks from Cavtat, Velebit up to Western Slavonija, the unit has participated in numerous surveys, reconnaissance missions, occupations of points along the demarcation line and liberation of temporarily occupied territories. Paralel with their military and police duties, they have have kept training routine which was one of the main factors attributed to the unit's members efficiency. The crown jewel of their warpath was the participation in the operations "Bljesak" (Flash) and "Oluja" (Storm) in which the Special police unit "Osa" participated as a part of the joint forces of the Ministry of Interior affairs. During the beforementioned operations they played one of the pivotal roles in the liberation of occuppied regions of the Republic of Croatia.
