I/R operations include handling, protecting, and accounting for dislocated civilians (DCs) and conducting battlefield confinement of US military prisoners. With the alignment of these additional categories, leaders and Soldiers must ensure that they understand and are prepared to apply the rules of engagement (ROE) and the rules of interaction (ROI) that apply to each category. The keys to a successful I/R operation are getting the mission accomplished and performing the mission under the correct mind-set. 

For example, the ROE that may apply to an Enemy Prisoner of War (EPW) may not apply to a refugee or a US military prisoner. 

However, an MP may be tasked to handle each category during the course of an operation.

The 193rd has recently provided care and custody with dignity and respect in Bagram, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  The 193rd Military Police Battalion is based out of the Denver Armory, Denver, CO. To contact the unit, call 720-250-2701.

The following companies fall under the 193rd: 

  - HHC 193rd Military Police
  - 220th Military Police Co.
  - 1157th Firefighter Co. & 199th, 200th Detachments (Colo Springs)
  - 947th Engineer Co. (Colo Springs)
