From the thesis abstract: "Terrorism, insurgency, and crime continue to rise as non-state threats to world-wide stability and thus the importance of establishing an effective local police force in stability operations has become widely accepted. However, the U.S. Government (USG) lacks the institutional capacity to develop police abroad apart from using the U.S. military during contingencies. The USG does not have an expeditionary stability police force similar to our international partners and our military, in spite of its many capabilities, will always be the second-best solution. To solve this problem, this paper proposes that the Military Police seek to become a more technically professional police organization in support of USG operational and strategic aims."
