Deployable Operations Group disbanded | Navy Times |

The Coast Guard is dismantling its 6-year-old command charged with overseeing deployable specialized forces — everything from counterterrorism units to tactical law enforcement and maritime security teams — returning those forces to regional commands.

The Deployable Operations Group, created in 2007 to consolidate the service’s elite tactical units, returned control of those units to area commanders April 22, confirmed Carlos Diaz, a Coast Guard spokesman. The move affects about 3,000 Coast Guardsmen, according to a 2010 estimate of DSF personnel by the Government Accountability Office.
