The main tasks of the Guard Battalion are the preparation of military police units and participation in military and state ceremonies.

Guard Battalion tasks

One of the tasks of the unit is to fulfill a national representation function, where the battalion’s conscripts guard the office of the President of the Republic.

Additionally, the conscripts of the Guard Battalion participate in various ceremonies, standing in the honor company formation upon the arrival and departure of high-ranking guests, participating in national and military funerals, memorial ceremonies, or ambassador credential presentations.

The basic military training of the Guard Battalion’s conscripts differs from other units, as the soldiers of the Guard Battalion also have to complete an honor company specialty course.
