35. COMMUNICATION. a. Rapid and efficient com-
munication between military police headquarters and pa-
trols is essential. Information and orders must be dissem-
inated quickly, disturbances involving service personnel
quelled in a minimum of time, and requests for military
police assistance answered rapidly. Radio, telephone, or
messenger communication may be used. Two-way radio is
used to the fullest possible extent between military police
headquarters and motor patrols. Two-way radio permits
the flow of instructions and information both to and from
the patrols, and provides positive knowledge that messages
are received. Where the military police radio net is sepa-
rate from that of the civil police, a transmitting and receiv-
ing set should be located at military police headquarters for
the purpose of disseminating information and dispatching
patrol vehicles. Where the military police use the civil
police radio net, no receiving and transmitting set is needed
at military police headquarters. Radio communication is
supplemented by the use of commercial telephone facilities
and police call boxes (when such use is permitted through
agreement with the civil police). It is frequently the prac-
tice of telephone companies to refund any coin deposited
at pay stations upon proper identification. Information
and instructions may also be forwarded by supervising pa-
trols. Patrols should report to military police headquarters
by telephone or radio at regular prearranged times.

quarters located beyond the limits of the community, the
radio, telephone, and teletype facilities of the civil police
are used where practicable.
