Militaries in civil society

The Royal Netherlands Marechaussee is one of the four branches of the Netherlands Armed Forces often working within civil society. The Marechaussee operate as the border police, and also protect VIPs and certain properties. Alongside international and military tasks the Marechaussee assists the police in case of, for example, a terrorist threat or as part of a specialized investigation team. Learn more about the tasks of this special branch of the Netherlands Armed Forces at the Marechausseemuseum.
