The Morrow Project planners anticipated that every Morrow Project team might have to engage in quasi-military operations and – in recognition of this possibility – equipped them accordingly with both weaponry and (some) doctrine/training.
MP Combat Training and Doctrine drew upon the experience of paramilitary SWAT teams (sometimes called “Special Response Teams”) because MP Planners considered that such units provided the best doctrinal framework for the sort of missions that were likely to be assigned to non-MARS units
