2 MILITARY POLICE Brigadier General Kevin Vereen Chief, Military Police Corps Regiment, and Commandant, U.S. Army Military Police School I t has been a busy time for the Regiment over the past few months. Our Soldiers and Department of the Army civilians all across the Military Police Corps Regiment continue to perform at the highest levels in policing, investigations, and corrections. Most notably, our formations (Regular Army, Army National Guard, and U.S. Army Re- serve) have participated in regionally aligned/regionally engaged missions in support of partnership exercises that span from Africa to Asia. These exercises allow our units to better integrate with our allied counterparts in various regions of the world, building strong relationships and gaining a better understanding of the capabilities that we offer one another. I applaud commanders and praise their aggressive efforts in seeking train- ing opportunities for their units while balancing daily law enforcement requirements that support garrison and senior mission commanders on Army installations inside and outside the continental United States. Military police Soldiers continue to be integral enablers of the Army's emerging re- quirements, placing demands on the force to advise and assist allied nations and build capacity in countries that strive to protect themselves. The professionalism that our Sol- diers and leaders display while conducting these very important missions will have a lasting impact. Every interaction military police have with other nations not only exposes those nations to our tremendous Army, but also provides opportunities for our Soldiers and leaders to be great ambassadors for our Nation. As the Army continues to adjust manning levels, every opportunity to showcase the value of the unique skills of the Regiment becomes even more important. Our Soldiers must be ready, trained, and equipped for success. Our policing skills must be a commodity that only we (the Military Police Corps) can deliver for the Army. As I travel around visiting units and engaging senior Army leaders, they all express their need and the value that our formations provide to mission success, whether protecting installations, conducting thorough investigations, or performing missions abroad . . . protecting and preserving the force. Lastly, I ask that our Regiment continue to remain vigilant as our law enforcement force remains on point to assist, pro- tect, and defend through our proactive policing skills. Our installations and our Army must rest comfortably at night, know- ing that we are living up to our motto as military police and that we are demonstrating it through actions every single day.
