arrested. At times it may be advisable to relieve a person
in protective custody of his valuables while he is under
military police control.
32. SICK AND INJURED. Facilities for rendering first
aid should be available at military police headquarters. Mili-
tary police should arrange with the nearest emergency hos-
pital or military dispensary for the care of sick or injured
personnel of the armed forces who come to the attention of
the military police. Care must be exercised to have all pris-
oners suffering from head injuries or from illness examined
by a medical officer or other physician as soon as possible.
When a soldier suffering from serious illness or injury is
hospitalized by the military police, his commanding officer
is notified promptly of the incident.
33. MILITARY POLICE TRANSIENTS. Wherever prac-
ticable, facilities are made available for the temporary ac-
commodation of military personnel transporting military
prisoners (other than prisoners of war) under guard. Pris-
oners are placed in the custody of military police so that
the guards may get needed rest.
34. PROVISIONAL MILITARY POLICE PASS. Pro-
visional military police passes are issued by the provost
a. When military personnel are taken into custody for
violations serious enough to justify revocation of their
passes or furloughs.
b. Where no passes have been issued.
c. When an absentee is apprehended and is considered
deserving of returning to his organization without a guard.
Necessary arrangements are made with the appropriate
transportation officer for the issuance of transportation re-
quests. For the form for a provisional military police pass,
see TM 19-250.
