Czech Military Police host "MP Panel"

Representatives of 18 NATO Military Police corps meet in the Czech Republic to discuss further cooperation within allied structures and doctrinal issues.

Three-day talks of NATO Military Police representatives called MP Panel were focused on both topical and long-term issues in a bid to make ties easier and deepen allied cooperation among police force.

Priorities of the talks include support of the NATO Multinational Military Police Battalion, which is to be affiliated to the NATO Multinational Corps Northeast in Szczecin, Poland. The Battalion was certified last year.

Further progress was made in formulating thesis of the Stability Policing Doctrine, the document to be followed by allied Military Police corps. During talks, final arrangements to birth of the Centre of Excellence of Military Police in Poland were also discussed together with its manning and training of its personnel.

"NATO does not need more military policemen, but it needs smart policemen, smart defence and especially mutual exchange of experience," Provost Marshal of the Allied Command Operations Colonel Willem Koops says at his closing address to MP Panel.

The MP Panel was held at the ministerial Educational and Training Centre at Chocerady on the premises of beautiful Komorni Hradek Castle, approximately 40 km southeast of Prague, 5 to 7 February 2013. Participants also visited some Military Police installations in Prague and the Prague Castle.
