    The Gendarmerie Special Public Security Command (Turkish: Jandarma Özel Asayiş Komutanlığı) or shortly as JÖAK, is the domestic special forces unit of the Gendarmerie General Command. It has several missions which include counter-terrorist actions, underwater operations, hostage rescue, riot control, and other high-threat criminal actions.

    The Gendarmerie General Command (Turkish: Jandarma Genel Komutanlığı) or Turkish Gendarmerie (Turkish: Türk Jandarması) is a branch of the Turkish Armed Forces responsible for the maintenance of the public order in areas that fall outside the jurisdiction of police forces (generally in rural areas), as well as assuring internal security and general border control along with carrying out other specific duties assigned to it by certain laws and regulations. The Gendarmerie is essentially a governmental armed security and law enforcement force of military nature.

    It also operates the Askeri İnzibat provost service, policing the armed forces and two special forces brigades called Jandarma Özel Harekat Komutanlığı and Jandarma Özel Asayiş Komutanlığı.
