Preface


This manual addresses Military Police (MP) battlefield circulation control (BCC), area security (AS), and enemy prisoner of war (EPW) operations in combat. It is intended for MP leaders at all levels. It emphasizes the diversity of actions and options available to MP leaders for use in MP combat and combat support operations. It addresses operational employment considerations and planning factors. And it provides tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) for MP small tactical elements.

Although this manual presents Military Police BCC, AS, and EPW operations in the context and operational environment of an AirLand battlefield, the purpose and nature of MP functions makes these operations applicable in any operational environment. Users of this manual should select and apply the TTP and levels of force that best suit the operational environment in which they are employed. Users of this manual should also select and/or modify the book's general guidance on the use of weapons and equipment to fit the weapons and equipment present in their particular units.

This manual is the first of two companion volumes that will consolidate MP warfighting TTP information. The information appropriate to combat and combat support operations has been consolidated in this volume. The information appropriate to MP law and order (L&O) operations and MP operations in low-intensity conflicts and situations short of war will be addressed in the second of the two volumes. Should information in this publication conflict with information presented in FMs 19-25, 19-30, 19-35, or 19-40, the information in this publication will apply.
