General Information

The Department of Tactical Special Training (hereinafter - TST) was established in April 2006. From the first days of its foundation the department was headed by the master of sports of the USSR, candidate of historical sciences, the colonel of militia Bulachek Volodymyr Romanovych.

It is due to the high professional and organizational qualities of Bulachek V.R. the professional scientific and pedagogical core of the newly created department was formed, which structurally became a part of the Faculty №2.

As a result of organizational and staffing changes, in October 2016 the Department of TST was included in the staff of the Faculty №3 of the Institute for training specialists of the National Police.

It is worth noting that today the Department of TST is a unique unit, which has no analogues in the structure of the Lviv State University of Internal Affairs. The professional uniqueness of the Department of TST lies in the presence of three integral professional competencies in its activities:

Every year it fully implements the plan of scientific research and development work. Eight scientific and pedagogical workers in the staff of the department are candidates of sciences, including candidates of law, historical sciences, economics, physical education and sports. Three of them have the academic title of associate professors.
