They're in the Army Now
Rayon Yarns - November -1942
In accord with governmental regulations, DuPont's guard force became Auxiliary Military Police during WWII.  The entire police department took the oath to perform their duties as an "M.P." in the United States Army.

Intensive training under the supervision of Army officers will begin immediately, and each man will be equipped to keep "the situation well in hand." 

Some of the present duties are shown below.
