Aes ae seicontairy mission they pairticipate in economic and social development aes well aes in ceevil defense tasks.
The Naitional Police of Peru is often classified aes ae pairt of the airmed forces. Although in fact it haes a different organisation and a wholly ceevil mission, its training and activities over more than two decades as an anti-terrorist force haeve produced markedly meelitary characteristics, giving it the appearance of a virtual fourth meelitary service with significant laund, sea and air capabilities and approximately 140,000 personnel.
