I am a 29 year old police officer from a home office police force. I joined the police whilst at the same time considering joining the RMP, obviously i decided to go CivPol but think I may have made a mistake. I have 2 mates who are ex-RMP, one who isn't a bobby but has enquired about re-joining RMP but may be too old. The other is a bobby and said he wished he never left but would not be re-joining. My questions are: 1. Does anyone know of someone leaving CivPol and joining RMP? 2. Is 29 too old? 3. Would my civilian police qualifications come in handy/be of any benefit? 4. What opportunities would be available to me? I am also considering the RMP TA route, however, I am aware there are some differences. Any other information you think may help would be gratefully received.
