The Military Police Assessment Centre is now not part of the recruiting process for part-time (Reserve) Military Police applicants. What does this mean to potential recruits? In short a faster recruiting process. This is good news.

For all full-time (Regular Force) Military Police applicants and current members of the Reserve (part-time) force looking to get their law enforcement credentials the assessment centre is still in place.

This information is retroactive to April 1st.

Anyone still interested in joining in the Calgary Area, feel free to send me a message and I can get you rolling.

We're always looking for more members (females, don't be scared either, we have 2 right now we'd like more!).

Even if as a Reservist you may not be engaged in policing duties right away (or at all, if that's your choice) there is an abundance of opportunities!

The directive became effective after March 31st, that is why you still had to go through it.

For those in Calgary Area, still entertaining recruitment requests, not pushing an agenda, but we have 2 females and would like to bolster that demographic if possible. We'll take any qualified candidate regardless.

Depends on whether you're looking for Reserve Force (Part Time) Service or Regular Force (Full Time) Service.

Average is about 6 months total processing time.

A Diploma in Border Security and Customs may not qualify you for the required entry to the Regular Force.

I'm in BC and am contemplating putting in an application for military police. I was in the infantry reserves from 2007-2011.

Are there any reserve MP units in BC?

If I go reg force, you can be assigned to any base correct? Even a base like aldergrove?

Aldergrove is serviced by the remnants of the Chilliwack Detachment which is sourced from CFB Esquimalt.

If you were Reg Force and get posted to Esquimalt, you could be asked to work out of Chilliwack. Otherwise, yes, you can be posted to any CFB in the country.

As for Reserve MP units, there is a Richmond Platoon and a Victoria Platoon.

I am currently a Bachelor of Arts student. Have completed 3 years and going into my 4th. I was wondering if i can still apply for Military police or do i have to have a degree or diploma.
thanks in advance for answer.

While it isn't particularly relevant Aldergrove is a Navy facility (with some Army Reserve units using the Navy's infrastructure) and there are no MPs there, part time or full time.

Chilliwack has three full-time (Regular Force) MPs who are posted there and are not related to Esquimalt. They belong to an Army MP unit and are headquartered out of Edmonton.

For the Regular Force (full-time) you're unlikely to meet the education requirement of a diploma in law enforcement studies. For the Reserve Force (part-time) you require grade 12.

If you're looking to enrol as an Officer the degree must be Crim, Psych, or Soc. There is some other degrees that are accepted. This is true for both Regular and Reserve Force. It's important to understand the managerial duties of an Officer if you elect that route. A lot less hands on.

Huh, I thought that they sourced them from positions out of Esquimalt. Didn't realize it was Edmonton that staffed it directly. Nevertheless, the Chilliwack guys are still responsible for any goings-on at CFS Aldergrove.

Can someone join the Reserve MP's but parade with another unit?

There doesn't appear to be any opportunity for reserve MP's in the BC interior.
