Figure 11. Questioning a soldier on the street.
a soldier should be taken into custody. Each case must be
determined on its own merit. The military policeman must
use his own judgment, basing his decision on the soldier's
actions and condition. However, the following objectives
must be kept in mind:
(a) To remove at once from public view and protect
from possible harm all military personnel who show signs
of intoxication or whose appearance is such as to bring
discredit upon the service.
(b) To return such personnel to their organizations fit
for duty at the earliest practicable time.
(2) A military policeman must never get into an argu-
ment with his partner al out the way a case is to be handled.
