Mobile Brigade Day in Indonesia Mobile Brigade Day is an Indonesian observance celebrated on November 14 every year. This professional holiday is dedicated to the special police operation force and paramilitary law enforcement responsible for counter-terrorism, police raids, riot control, bomb disposal in urban settings, search and rescue, etc.

The history of the Mobile Brigade Corps (BRIMOB) dates back to 1945, when a special police corps named Special Police Troops was formed to disarm the remnants of the Japanese Imperial Army and to protect the head of state and the capital. On November 14, 1946, the prime minister reorganized the Special Police Troops into the Mobile Brigade.

Between the late 1940s and the mid-1970s, the Mobile Brigade was deployed in various confrontations and conflicts in Indonesia. It also participated in military confrontations with neighboring countries, such as the Indonesian-Malaysian confrontation (1963–1966) and the Indonesian invasion of East Timor (Operation Lotus, 1975).

In the late 1970s, the Mobile Brigade became part of the Indonesian National Police. Main tasks of the Mobile Brigade include coping with organized crime and mass riots, carrying our search and rescue operations, liquidating chemical, biological and radioactive threats, etc.
