KINGSTON, Ontario, March 17 (UPI) -- Canada's Department of National Defense has released two new doctrines that establish updated techniques and procedures for the land operations.
The Directorate of Army Doctrine, the agency within the department responsible for changes in doctrinal trends and concepts, released new doctrines Tuesday on ground maneuver reconnaissance and land operations for the military police, the department reported.
The ground maneuver reconnaissance publication updates situational awareness and tactical maneuvers. The new doctrine guides reconnaissance, intelligence, surveillance and target-acquisition operations and training.
Officials said the military police in land operations doctrine focuses on "leveraging professional police skills to conduct tactical activities that contribute to achieving operational effects," according to a news release.
The land operations for military police publication also updates doctrine for specialized force protection and stability operations, including policing in failed states, and investigating war crimes, along with training and mentoring guidelines.
