Dear ARRSERs, I am going to join the British Army. I have already done the interviews and the BARB test. I am also very confident I will pass ADSC. I can choose almost any trade in the Army but am attracted to the RMP. I've been looking through these boards and it struck me that job satisfaction in the RMP is rock bottom. Most of the regular posters who say they are RMP/Ex-RMP appear bitter. This is surprising in a way because the RMP has some of the highest academic and BARB score requirements, and the RMP has no shortage of recruits according to the Sgt at AFCO. Logically, the RMP should have a pool of relatively intelligent, motivated pool of recruits to choose from and then on, to build the Corps upon. What is the problem with the RMP? Is it because one does very little police work in the RMP with the result that most recruits end up doing very little of what they joined up to do? Or is it that the RMP gives its soldiers very little civillian qualifications and therefore new entrants end up feeling very insecure? AFAICT, the RMP does not currently have the same level of trust from the public as a Home Office force. Is the problem therefore that the RMP isn't equipped with enough powers/manpower to do its job of policing the Army properly? What would you say are good reasons to join the RMP? Thank you gents.
