In what ways are a Military Police Office and a City Police Officer similar and different?
They both must carry a weapon most times while on duty, learn how to clearn, shoot, etc and keep physically fit and have a passing standard for qualification.
Differences include jurisdictions, various duties….military doesn’t have CSI, detectives, vice, etc…..its mainly broken up as your type of duty….guard, patrol, escort, etc.
Military police in general is your billet…or rather an “assigned job”. If you lose your right to carry a weapon..say from a domestic violence charge, you will eventually lose that billet and position because you do not meet the qualifications…where as a civialian, you can be put on leave of absence, get a desk job while investigated or such…but your still a cop.
The MPs will exercise restraint and only use reasonable force.
The only similarity is that they both wear uniforms and carry a sidearm. Many MPs who try out for PDs fail miserable because the qualifications are entirely different; city cops are tested and interviewed extensively before they are accepted into the academy, MPs just have to be big and have a serious persona. Being a city cop is a career while being an MP is an assignment.
