NATO MP COE launches the pilot edition of the MP Lessons Learned Staff Officer Course

On 18 – 22 April 2016, the NATO Military Police Centre of Excellence (NATO MP COE) held a pilot Military Police Lessons Learned Staff Officer Course (MPLLSOC). During the course, a comprehensive method of blended learning was implemented: stationary module supported by e–Learning session. Prior to this event, the NATO Community of Interest (COI) had never possessed an exclusively MP-oriented LL course. Participants not only learned the NATO LL Process but also had a possibility to review their new skills by practising during syndicate work. Along the course, evaluators from the NATO MP COE collected feedback and observations from all participants to be further developed.

The 3rd Annual Tactical Lessons Learned Forum takes place in Bydgoszcz on 9 – 13 May 2016

Lessons Learned (LL) should be considered not only as the final step of a process but rather, as the beginning of experience gaining, which is almost always the best teacher. One may quickly build vast amounts of knowledge and expertise at low cost by learning from others. Therefore, this is precisely the prime goal of the Annual Tactical Lessons Learned Forum (ATLLF). This year’s event concentrates on the “Detention Operations” – a sensitive subject which shall be overviewed and further developed within the NATO doctrine. Since “Captured Persons” (CPERS) remain a national (Detaining Power) responsibility, thus handling them under multinational umbrella within NATO-led exercise and operations might be problematic and challenging. However, the role of the respective sensitive matters’ treatment is ideally suitable for a single nation that undertakes the entire commitment, but planning on the organisation itself, particular responsibilities’ assignment and a coordinating hub’s establishment are to be addressed preferably on a shared and multinational basis. Consequently, important planning aspects, which have to be considered, are as follows: a national policy being imposed with respect to certain facets of CPERS handling (e.g., release authorities and protocols, and the maximum time permitted to hold CPERS), legal aspects and information- sharing.
