The RFI is out and there is a timeline attached for the pistol replacement and we re figuring out how the rollout and training will work.
What we’ll blame for shooting frustration then I can only wait and see.
I’ve worked with the MPs a fair amount, but it’s a little dated now. It’s a unique little niche that has duties that civilian police conduct along with their army stuff.
My anecdotal experience is they would like to be good at their tasks but they don’t have the support of experience on most types of criminal files. Several years ago Borden was considered the busy base for crimes against person- but so many MPs in the guardhouse meant that the experience was quite diluted across them.
You could say similar about a lot of small police forces in some provinces but to a lesser degree.
I happened to enjoy working with them when I had the chance. But it’s not the same job. I’m basing that off the guardhouse in a few locations, CFNIS, SOF MPU on one file years ago.
It’s security and army work with police duties attached to it. And my opinion is they organizationally overemphasize the Police portion of their work: for a reason I’m not in a position to understand as an outsider
