RMP requirements question

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello there.

    Several years ago I was given a final warning by the Police, which is apparently not classed as having a criminal record (so the Officers told me).
    I'm aware the RMP require a clean criminal record, but I'm not sure how a warning would be classed?.

    Given I was under 18 at the time it apparently is void after a certain age.
    Whether relevant it did not involve violence or drugs.

    Assume it does bar me, but thought it better to ask; I'll go elsewhere in the Army if it is the case

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.
    All the best.
  2. If it was a warning i wouldnt be too bothered about it.

    Doesnt your record get reset at 17/18 anyway?

    Think you should be ok to be honest mate.
  3. Ask. If the bloke in the AFCO doesn't know, then he can show you a copy of the form you'll have to fill in declaring your dealings with the law, which will tell you how long you have to wait until you are eligible to join up. The standards for the RMP are higher than many other branches, but a Final Warning is unlikely to put your application in jeopardy (although it may depend on your crime).
  4. Around that. The Police were not quite sure the exact date, but seemed to think 19.

    Will do. Thank you both for your answers.
