The Puyallup Police Department sent two of its top officers to Joint Base Lewis-McChord this week to work with military police who are deploying to Afghanistan.

Puyallup’s deputy chief, Bryan Jeter, and Capt. Scott Engle worked with members of the 42nd Military Police Brigade, according to information from the city.

They were asked to provide tips on applying police training to real situations, the city said.

The city of 37,000 people in eastern Pierce County works with the base as a community connector, providing support to the 2nd Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division.

City spokeswoman Glenda Carino said the program is about “more than fundraising for care packages or having soldiers march in our parades.” For example, she said, soldiers also have worked with city Parks and Recreation staffers to learn about setting up recreation programs.
