    CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – The Marine Corps has created its first law enforcement battalions — a specialized force of military police officers that it hopes can quickly deploy worldwide to help investigate crimes from terrorism to drug trafficking and train fledgling security forces in allied nations.

    The Corps activated three such battalions last month. Each consists of roughly 500 military police officers and dozens of dogs.

    Maj. Jan Durham says the Marine Corps has had police battalions off and on since WWII but they were primarily focused on providing security, such as accompanying fuel convoys or visiting generals through dangerous areas. Durham is commander of the 1st Law Enforcement Battalion at Camp Pendleton.

    The new additions come as every branch in the military is trying to show its flexibility and resourcefulness amid defense cuts.

    Soon to be deployed on American soil in a neighborhood near you.

    And they'll be ordered to shoot American civilians too. And most of them will, without a second thought.
