Well, not sure how you define "police or military" force, but there is
NATO, which overlaps with the EU, and Frontex, which is the EU border


Also, the Frontex page mentions the European Fisheries Control Agency
(EFCA) and the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA). I don't know to what
extent, if any, they have policing powers, but Frontex surely does.
