Part of our value-added professional format series of U.S. military manuals, this U.S. Marine Corps manual provides the doctrinal basis for employment of military police in support of Marine air-ground task force (MAGTF) operations. This publication addresses military police missions, functions, objectives, and capabilities in peace, crisis, and war. MCWP 3-34.1 also describes how military police serve as a MAGTF force multiplier by interacting and supporting tactical-level expeditionary activities.
This publication is designed for commanders and staff planners responsible for conduct of military police activities in support of expeditionary operations and operations other than war. MCWP 3-34.1 provides information for consideration in planning and execution of military police operations regarding area security, force protection, enemy prisoner of war and civilian internee control, maneuver and mobility support operations, military law enforcement, and nonlethal weapons employment. It also details logistic requirements, physical security, customs, and military working dog employment.
Military police support Marine air-ground task force (MAGTF) operations during peace, conflict, and war. Employed as a MAGTF force multiplier, military police operate across the force continuum to support training in nonlethal weapons use, antiterrorism/force protection (AT/FP) operations, noncombatant evacuation operations, civil unrest, and other security operations.
During joint and multinational operations, military police perform specialized functions in areas of accident investigations, criminal investigations, employment of military working dogs, physical security, and corrections. In addition, military police enhance interoperability through liaison and coordination with joint, combined, host nation (HN) and nongovernmental organizations. To maximize the limited available military police (MP) assets, commanders must prioritize support requirements.
