TA and Mod Plod

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Reserve Recruitment' started by ub2008, Jan 15, 2009.

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. Does anyone know if you can be in the TA whilst applying to join the MOD plod? Do you have to quit when appointed as a constable and then reapply to join, or is it unlike civ plod in that they can appoint serving TA members?
     
  2. Visit the MOD website, you will find that the MOD Police are in both Afghanistan and Iraq. They operate in FOBs in Afghanistan so I imagine that you would not need to stay in the TA.
     
  3. Right ok, but if you did decide you wanted to stay in the TA would this be alright as long as you kept the two roles seperate if and when you are deployed? I.e. if you are deployed as a TA soldier you do your duties as expected of you in that role, if you are deployed as MOD plod then you do those duties.
