Brunssum, the Netherlands - From 10 to 14 September a team from JFC Brunssum (JFCBS) conducted a Mobile Training Team (MTT) visit to Kyiv, Ukraine, on the subject of Military Policing (MP) in NATO.
Over three days the team, comprising Colonel Desiree Scheffrahn (JFCBS Provost Marshal), Lieutenant Commander Michelle Ward (staff officer JFCBS Military Partnership Branch), and Squadron Leader Frank Munro (JFCBS staff officer), provided a number of briefings. The audience of approximately 60 personnel included, amongst others, officers from the Military University and leaders from from the four Ukrainian MP Territorial Departments. Topics briefed and discussed included NATO MP tasking, lessons identified and stability policing.
The event was coordinated with the Military Police Sub-committee of the Multinational Joint Commission for Defence Reform and Security Cooperation for Ukraine. It was very well received by all attendees, as demonstrated by their enthusiastic participation in the final day's syndicate work. This was the third of four such events planned to take place in Ukraine this year.
