The 4th Romanian MP Detachment, 265th Romanian MP Battalion, Bucharest, supplement the Provost Marshal Office to accomplish the law and order mission on Bagram Airfield. The 4th ROU MP Det. are deployed on a six-month rotation to Afghanistan.

The Romanian military police operate alongside their American counterparts at the Bagram PMO to form an international military police force with The 938th MP Det. from the Indiana Army National Guard, Gary, Ind.

U.S. Army Capt. Sean Feeney, serves at the Bagram Provost Marshal.

"It is a great honor and privilege to be able to work hand in hand with the dedicated Soldiers to the 4th Romanian detachment," said Feeney.

First Lt. (Locotenent) Mirela Ivascu, serves as the Deputy Provost Marshal.

"Acting in an international spectrum, but especially working with our U.S. MP partners is a challenge and a great opportunity to set high standards and to work hard every day to keep them there or to improve them," sadi Ivascu.

The 4th ROU MP Det. will soon end its rotation to Afghanistan and return home to Bucharest.
