Life as an RMP

#1
Hi guys, as the topic suggests, Imlooking for info on the life of an RMP. Im ex RLC, that was 4 yeras ago now(I hate myself for discharging, but thats life!!) Looking to re-join and considering RMP. As ever the booklet in the careers office makes the job look sexy, but then the books in the careers office make the stores look sexy! Im so keen to get my 95's back on but dont want to make the same mistake as last time and sign myself up to something Id ont really like! I did consider the civi police, but if I were civi police I wouldnt be in the Army.....and I want to be in the Army! Iv been reading some of the posts in the forum and it sounds like all RMP's are just pencil pushers! Please tell me I'v got the wrong impression!!

The job itself can be exciting, and there is nothing better than jumping into a fight and 'sorting' it out, its just the paperwork associated with the job, as there is with the Civvi bill. We do generate alot of paperwork, i'll not bullshite you but once you get use to it you can knock it out pretty sharpish.

The paperwork is a nightmare and it aint going to get any better. Whereabouts in the country are you? Have you considered RMP TA?
 
#4
Cant be doing with the TA, no offence to any TA members, but Im looking for full reg only.Iv regretted leaving the forces since about month 2 of civi life.Maybe MP isnt for me then, or perhaps it is.Christ, joining the army isnt as easy as they make out is it!?

Firstly, as many old and bold will with much frustration agree, there is no such thing as an Royal Military Police (man/woman).

You will have a lot of paperwork but thats what policing seems to be in this day and age, irrespective of civ/mil genre. Although the advice I was given by a 1970's proper community bobby that a good polieman never has to use his notebook has much merit.

You will have exciting times and boring times which is only to be expected, moreso in RMP because your general Bill Oddie doesn't do too much crime twixt 2-7 am, especially on a Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed . . . that's when you can do above writing drills.

At the end of the day you should be joining a police organisation to help people who have suffered injustice. If that's your calling then do it. If you want to be a soldier first then try something else.

Typical monkey, making up a charge to get brownie points. It was never proved anyway :D

I may have got my stripes by collecting tokens on Rice Crispy boxes but at least I got them, along with the pay, the pension and other benefits that go with them.

Any idiot can do 22 years as a private (as I'm guessing you know all about) :p .

In my 12 years I never went to or spoke to a monkey. Always slapped the bitch back and there were no mobiles in my day. We always sorted things out between ourselves.

Obviously you never served as a SOLDIER.

Billc,

You talk a lot of talk about serving as a soldier (always in the past tense I might add) and make a big thing about how us monkeys don't serve as soldiers.

You say you served 12 years and mobile phones were not around then, exactly how long have you been out now (I'm guessing a while if you missed the mobile phone stage)?

And my main question why after these years away do you still come onto other Corps threads and pick fights?

I bet your one of these people in Burger King who bore your fellow staff members stupid with your tales of heroism from your days in the service.

By service I mean Airsoft.

And another thing Billc, the title of the thread is 'Life as an RMP', exactly where do you fit in with this with all your talk of people never serving as soldiers, am I misreading it, does it really say 'Life as a Soldier'.

Obviously you never served as an RMP.

Nothing better to do eh, I understand.
