MP and MPO Reserve Requirements
« on: December 05, 2015, 11:19:14 »
Hey there I'm really interested in becoming an MP or an MPO in the reserves (mainly an MPO because I don't mind having a desk job at the same time as giving the leadership the people in my section need) what would I need to do these jobs in the reserves? I read that they're different requirements between the reservists and reg force guys, can someone clear this up for me? Much appreciated thanks

Hmm, doesn't really help but thanks a lot anyway! Like I'm wondering for just an MP in the reserves do they need police foundations? And ahaha pretty much, I don't mind that at all

Hey guys, Just so the waters do not get muddied. I will be clear.


1. I am the authority on Res MP Rctg in Western Canada and the Reserve Army Western Military Police Recruiting (1 MP Regt, 15 MP Coy) NCO.

2. I cannot speak to the Regular Force MP Recruiting issues.

3. The Reserve Military Police Platoons in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Victoria, are recruiting hard for members.

4. The CFRC's still have the old recruiting requirement listed. The new ones have been approved they are moving through the chain for approval. I hope they will make it to the CFRC's before christmas.

5. If you have presently meet the following criteria and are interested in the Res MP:

Canadian Citizen, Enrolled in Grade 12, Good Morale Character, Drivers License ...

I want to hear from you soonest.

Let me worry about the current listings at CFRC.

Thanks  :nod:

Recruiting standards for Army Reservists are much different than those for Regular Force and Air Reserve.  If your supporting/processing RC tells you anything other than what ResMP has provided above, encourage them to contact the unit that you plan on joining...

And the big thing for potential reserve MPs to remember is they will have no badge and no peace officer status unless they qualify for and eventually take the necessary reg force MP training AND get employed on a Class B or C tasking requiring that status.

I consider ResMP, DAA and Schindler's Lift to be very credible sources.

As always, best to contact Recruiting.

Alright thanks a lot Mike, currently I'm a grade 12 student and doing fairly well and looking to get into Law and Society at York university, I have my drivers license, as well as I have a good judgment between what's right, wrong, moral, and immoral, as well as just a good person that helps out in their community, does that mean I could apply right now? Oh and I'm born here in Canada as a Canadian citizen and I also have a Brazilian citizenship as well, thanks again mike!  :)

I called that number. The answering machine says to leave a message and they will return your call.

And well yeah, I know that reservists don't get a badge unless they take the 6 month reg forces course, but that's about it.

Oh and the thing is the number I got is 32 MP platoon and that is ext 2992 I believe, 32 MP regiment is stationed with 2 MP Platoon at the same armory. So tomorrow I guess I'll call 2 MP, but I'm just wondering about getting in right now, and well yeah
