Berlin, Germany—The GSG 9 is expanding.

The elite counter-terrorism unit of the German federal police is looking to increase its numbers by a third.

“We’re talking about around a third of the current strength of the unit,” said GSG 9 commander Jérome Fuchs.

He did stress, however, that recruiting the right officers will be a challenge. But he’s adamant that the fitness and psychological standards will remain the same.
