The second edition of the NATO & PfP Military Police Handbook is another functional product prepared by the Doctrine and Standardization Branch of the NATO Military Police Centre of Excellence (NATO MP COE). This iteration is enriched by contribution of Turkey, which is now among other countries that were presented in the previous edition of the handbook (i.e. Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia). Consequently, the handbook gives a unique chance to compare structures, capabilities, tasks, equipment, as well as other relevant data reflecting differences, and what is even more significant – similarities among MP national formations. This publication is reviewed annually in order to update the foregoing data, as well as enable other countries to join this initiative. The handbook is available under the following link
The last Annual Military Police Lessons Learned Conference (AMPLLC) was held on 05-08 December 2016 at the NATO Military Police Centre of Excellence (NATO MP COE) in Bydgoszcz. This year’s topic concerned extracting MP-related lessons from exercises and operations and focused on Lessons Identified (LI) and Lessons Learned (LL) in general, as well as those connected with one of the NATO MP core functions – Mobility Support Operations (MSO). All identified experiences will be uploaded to the MPLL Portal and available for registered users of the MP Community of Interest (CoI).
