  4. Hi Daisy.

    As you can see you will get a lot of bone answers in here, especially regarding RMP, so brace yourself.

    There is so much you can do within RMP that I could not possibly list them all here, but I'll try and sumerise.

    Firstly you will have to join as a GPD (General Police Duties). Within GPD, there are many things you can go on to specialise in, such as CP (Close Protection/Bodyguarding), Crime Reduction, Criminal Intelligence, Covert Observation Team and a few more I cannot think of.

    After 5 years you can ellect to transfer to the SIB (Special Investigation Branch) which is the Army equivilant of CID, subject to passing their course. From here the world really is your oyster. You can specialise in so many more fields such as Crime Scene Investgator, Crash Investigator, Child Protection Officer, Famillies Liaison Officer, Drugs Intelligence and many, many more.

    Whatever your choice you wont be dissapointed. Just be carefull of all the posts you are gonna get in here. Feel free to PM me any time

    Good Luck
  5. Surely the Corps has introduced RMPCSOs by now?
  6. And all of this answer can be reduced to 'policeman'. You can't specialise as a 'Collision Investigator' (referred to by our man here as a 'crash investigator) in RMP. You may undertake a short course in that subject but it does not confer professional or expert status. That requires a bit more than a short residential course of 1 - 2 weeks. The SIB are not the 'equivelent' to the CID. FLO is not a full time role nor is CSI. COT as far as I am aware does not exist anymore. You'll wait a long time to get any of the remaining posts.

    Feel free to PM him though. He sounds like he's a man with his finger on the pulse.
  7. Only a matter of time...
