Summary

This study considers the creation of a high-end police force for use in stability operations, examining its ideal size, how responsive it needs to be, where in the government to locate it, its needed capabilities, its proper staffing, and its cost. A 6,000-person force—created in the U.S. Marshals Service and whose officers are seconded to domestic police agencies when not deployed—would be the most effective of the options considered.
