Abstract:

Several important issues have developed in recent years which require an evaluation of military police functions, an analysis of installation military police force structures, and military police mobilization planning. Most military police functions as presently performed are valid, and support the total Army Goals. They will require performance into the future by personnel trianed to accomplish the varied technical aspects of each function. Military police units which provide support at US Army installations can and should be structured as TOE units through using existing force planning documents and procedures. The civilianization of military police spaces on US Army installations will reduce combat readiness and will impact adversely on the total Army law enforcement effort. Military police mobilization planning needs greater attention and emphasis at all levels. Post-mobilization planning for military police support at mobilization stations can be accomplished systematically. Consequently, the Army must insure that the necessary military police force structure is maintained to provide for the performance of installation-oriented military police functions during peacetime, while at the same time insuring that the appropriate mobilization planning is accomplished to meet wartime contingencies overseas and at CONUS mobilization installations.
