Just a quick question with regards to RMP postings and whether or not soldiers are given the opportunity to list a preference as to where they will be sent after Phase Two training. I appreicate it will always be a case of being sent where you're needed. I'm considering joining the RMP after 8 years in the Civilian Police, however, my other half will be staying in the job in London if i do join so i'm having to look into the possibility of where i might realistically end up. It's obviously a big decision as we're looking at getting married next year. Ultimately, there are going to be pros and cons to whatever i decide but it's a case of weighing everything up and deciding what is best in the long run. I've become completely dissilusioned with the Civilian Police. The whole job has gone t**s up in the relatively short amount of time i've been in and i'm reaching the age now where it's a case of 'now or never'. I don't want to end up regretting not having joined the RMP as it has always been something i have wanted to do but on the other hand i've also got to take into account the fact that i'm going to be starting a family within the next couple of years. It would also be good to know how serving soldiers manage with living away from their families when moving with them every posting is not an option although i have a feeling this might not be the best forum to answer that question. Thanks in advance.
