Ive had a good look on here and it seems a lot of the threads are quite dated or answered by people perhaps no longer in the forces or a bit removed from the role of the RMP today (no offence intended and sorry if that isnt the case), so apologies if anyone thinks I am repeating questions that have already been asked but wanted some up to date answers. Ive passed Main Board and looking to go to Sandhurst after finishing university. Interested in the RMP because Ive always had an interest in Policing, and I wanted to do some time in the military so it seems to be the ideal mix of both. I do have a few questions regarding the actual career path of an RMP Officer though: 1) How much policing work do you actually get to do? Im not naive enough to think an officer is going to do exactly the same duties as a soldier and then some, but from what Ive read on here some of you imply it is almost just a desk job compared to what RMP soldiers do. 2) I am looking at most likely just doing a Short Service Commission of 3 years. In this time, will I get to be CP and/or SIB qualified? I hear now that you have to be trained in both rather than just specialising in one. 3) On operations, especially involving CP work, how much on the ground work do you do as a young officer, i.e. would I be patrolling with my soldiers, or what would day to day job entail? 4) Also interested in doing P Coy or Commandos, how likely are the RMP to let me go do this? Anyone of any knowledge or experience of such situations? If anyone who is currently serving, or has a good knowledge of RMP workings could provide any help or advice, would be much appreciated. Also any RMP soldiers experiences of officers and how involved they are with your day to day workings. Many Thanks. PS. Lets try not to have a RMP bashing session...if you want to insult my choice of career path, feel free to pm me, but dont waste the space on the thread.
