CTF has been around in the South Central since before I was there in 2000 @pogan

Was based in Pearse Street and had lads from B, E & A in it

Was always uniformed and used marked and unmarked cars, mostly unmarked though
Sorry but HOW many copies of this do you want????

CTF is in every division in the dmr and is now called the Burglary Response Unit and has been around donkey's years. In my place we're plain clothes 75% of the time.

CTF are in every DMR division as whitewater has said. Previously there was one for the city based in the square and to my knowledge called STF could be mistaken but it was absorbed into ERU. In country divisions you have crime units which are more or less CTF.

I think STF was created in the 80s in response to armed robberies and was later a mix of absorbed into SDU and more armed DDU 

CTF has been around since before any of us by a long shot, theres lads retired now that talk about being on CTF.

Interesting to note CTF were once allowed carry firearms on night duty in a time when normal uniform members could sign a firearm out to respond to an armed call (before ERU, Armed DDU, etc)

Depending on the area, CTF can be divisional, district, plain clothes or uniform or a mix in both marked and unmarked cars.

Or in some places they just became the 'fill the gaping hole with a few extra yellow jackets for a few days ploy' unit

Was on one up to very recently, down the country they are mainly units with an operation name and follow an operational order. It gives lads on the regular something to look or work towards

I though CDU was the Central Detective Unit or "murder squad" which became NBCI which is now called something else?

CDU was central detective unit, Murder squad was C4 part of the tech bureau. NBCI was formed after CDU and C4 and a few other sections were amalgamated at the same time CTF divisional teams were set up
