The United States conducts Host Nation Police Advisory HNPA missions, as a subset of Security Sector Reform SSR, to improve the rule of law and legitimacy of failing and failed states. To develop a more effective HNPA program, the U.S. Government USG must 1 improve its internal cooperation through integrated planning, before and during the conduct of HNPA missions, 2 implement programmatic changes addressing, in particular, authorities, lines of funding, and manning, and 3 revise the operational systems utilized, including planning, training, implementation, and assessment methods to achieve greater long term success. In addition to USG reforms, the Department of Defense DOD, especially the U.S. Army Military Police Corps, must transform its organizational culture and mission to embrace HNPA. The monograph assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the USG and DODs execution of HNPA by applying Mintzbergs concept of strategy development. The analysis illustrates the necessity of integrated planning and the reforms required within both the USG and DOD to improve the planning, resourcing, and execution of HNPA therefore improving global stability and security.
