The material contained in this lesson was derived from the following publication: FM
Military police (MP) are responsible for enemy prisoners of war and civilian internees (EPW/CIs).
This will be from the time they are accepted from the capturing troops until they are later repatriated.
Through the various stages, MP must maintain security and control to ensure orderly transfer of
prisoners. You are an NCO in an MP unit with an EPW/CI mission. You must supervise security and
control operations at each stage of processing.
The processing of EPW is done in the combat zone. This is for security, control, or intelligence
reasons or for the welfare of the EPW. It is referred to as field processing. This includes personal
searches, segregation and medical care. It also includes classification, interrogation, and sanitation
measures. Field processing takes place at the forward collecting points.
