Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to address the requirement that the US military maintain a constabulary capability to support United Nations peacekeeping operations. Additionally, the paper will show what is unique about establishing a constabulary capability, within the US military, focusing on international peace operations. It will also make recommendations for future enhancement of these required capabilities. Based on the need to have a constabulary capability, the paper will present alternatives to satisfy this requirement by establishing a separate force. Finally, the paper recommends the creation of a separate constabulary, from within DoD, to be the mainstay of the US contribution to peace operations
