International Mobile Police Communications Squad

 To ensure the necessary communication for the Japan Disaster Relief Team, the NPA has been selecting technical officials for delegation to the International Mobile Police Communications Squad since January 2000. By receiving trainings periodically, they are expected to be sent to foreign countries. They are responsible for info-communication measures including the establishment of communication lines between a site and Japan and among on-site units.
 The NPA has dispatched the members of the International Mobile Police Communications Squad to Saipan and Palau for imperial escort security, to Algeria, Morocco, Thailand, Pakistan, China, Indonesia, New Zealand, Nepal, and Mexico as members of the Japan Disaster Relief Team.
 In September 2017, a huge earthquake hit Mexico. Two members of the Squad were sent as members of the Japan Disaster Relief Team and contributed to the search and rescue activities in the affected areas by installing/operating communications equipment. With an aim of responding at any time and under any circumstances, the International Mobile Police Communication Squad conducts domestic training in normal times, assuming a specific situation, as well as overseas training to gain more practical experience.
