RMP Phase 2???

#1
alrite folks, im joining RMP shortly (waiting on that f**king medical)

was just wondering if anyone had any details about what im going to be doing during phase 2 of my training, since the job brief tells you FA. Also does RMP phase 2 cover driving?

cheers :wink:

I have the Job Brief in front of me. It says you will learn about civilian and military law and maintain a high level of fitness. You will also be made aware of the requirements of a police officer in investigating, detecting and reporting crimes. Finally for those who don't hold a licence, you will learn to drive a car, Land Rover and possibly a motorbike.

RMP have a full NVQ programme and maintain linkswith civil police, often attending their courses.

After four years general policing duties as an RMP you have the opportunity to specialise in a variety of areas including Dog Handler, Special Investigations Branch (the army's equivalent of CID) and Close Protection (the army's bodyguards).

Basically, every other soldier will despise every breath you take.

:roll: Yep, and the entire RMP lie awake every night worrying themselves sick over what a 'combat navvy' thinks about them.

Awww that's not fair, I remember you were always smiling at work, you weren't on drugs then were you (or is alcohol officially classified as a drug now)?

Anyway, I am being serious, most RMP are happy in their jobs, okay some get pizzed off with certain aspects of it but that is the case in all jobs. I still think the Army, in particular RMP is an excellent choice of career

i agree, it's an excellent choice, best job in t'army. but.... the kids are getting fed a lot of misinformation these days and it's not hard to see why they get very quickly disillusioned. they think they're all going to be dog-handling CP feds on motorbikes... the reality is a bit different.

selective info is the secret of successful army advertising :p thats why im on arrse tryin to learn as much as i can. Might aswell research my corps while waitn on that pesky medical :x

I already know you can transfer to dog handling, CP, or SIB after doing a few years in GPD, but thats understandable. Does anyone know what qualifications im going to leave the Defence Police College with? If any :?

Call me Mr Picky but best job and disillusioned do not seem to complement each other in the same sentence.
I am sure if you look hard enough you will find a Playboy or Hustler photographer that is disillosioned.
