The picket stood


Explanation:
Maybe the 'h' was a typo for 'n', i.e. 'de piket stond' - is it possible to tell from the rest of the sentence?
(One of those handwritten police reports??) 'STOHD' is not a recognised acronym.
The context should also enlighten you on whether the picket was a small pole in the ground or a union member enforcing strike action...

The picket "Special Team Order Maintaining Service"


Explanation:
Piket is een groep.
Het meest waarschijnlijk lijkt me:
Speciaal Team OrdeHandhavingsDienst

Het blijft een gok. Team en Dienst is een beetje een tautologie.

Speciaal Team Opsporing ?-Delicten
Speciale Taakgroep ???
