The Metropolitan Police Anti-Terrorist Branch (SO13) was formed to respond to terrorist activities within the capital and the surrounding areas.

In 2005, the Branch had 345 officers attached to it, with funding for another 500 being sought. The Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Ian Blair announced that Specialist Operations units were to be re-aligned.

In 2005 the Anti-Terrorist Branch and the Special Branch were merged, creating a new unit the Counter Terrorism Command, or SO15.
