We're always undermanned

If you want in, just do it. They'll find a spot if you're selected.

Cheers, contacted the CFRC this am and he said 100 people for this year.

Going to try it out.
The military isn't really like a James Bond movie where you go for jet training in the morning and then underwater demolitions after lunch.

Been accepted for my VOT to MP.  Start Aug 8th.  Two English courses and one French.  Seems like they are pumping out a lot of new MPs considering the trade is on the smaller side.

Really looking forward to starting course.

Anyone else on the forum starting Aug 8th?

Holy ****, that's pretty good!

Was the BPSO interview something you had to book yourself, or is it done for you through DMCPG?

The BPSOs office called me to book the initial.  I did the first interview with the BPSO, as well as a personality test.  CFAT score was valid and was high enough so I choose not to redo.

From there I was told that if merit listed I would be selected for further interviews.  The next interview was done by a Sgt MP.  This is when I submitted drivers abstract, employment history, etc.

How long did the interview with the MP Sgt take? An did they come to you or did you visit them at the guardhouse?

It's an interview, from a qualified assessor/investigator.

It can typically be anywhere from 1-3 hours.

They will come to you, or you will go to them depending on your proximity to a base and MP unit.

I just received an email from the recruiting centre with an additional form to fill out titled "Consent to Disclosure of Police Records (CPIC and SAMPIS) for CPAC, MPAC, MPOAC and Disclosure of Current/Previous Employment Information", is that a good sign that I may be receiving a date for my MPAC soon, or is that just another arbitrary form to complete??

Someone correct me if I am wrong. It is my understanding that is the next step after your background check is completed from your recruiting centre, as I have been told from some others in the process. That is also my next step. Also, there is no more MPAC at Borden as a trial this year.

After you submit that then there is an interview with the MP's.

Recently they have been doing one on one interviews and not MPAC.

Just submitted my VOT paperwork, just waiting on the call from the BPSO for an interview here in Toronto.

I've been putting feelers out, trying to do some job shadowing with some of the MP units nearby, ASU Toronto and CFB Borden.  Toronto has no issue with me coming by and speaking to the members in the detachment, but they don't really do the typical day to day stuff that MPs do.  They have a single cruiser their I believe.  The Warrant in Borden deleted my email without reading it hahaha!

So they're no longer doing the MPAC? interesting... probably too expensive overall.

Any insight into the interview with the MP Sgt that CCM81 had?

I am waiting for my interview as well. I would imagine it is a police style interview 1-3 hours and could cover everything in your entire life such as job history, past/current drug use, past and current bad behaviors as well as what you know about the MP branch of the military etc. Ive just prepared myself for almost any question, just know yourself and  your past well. I have not been able to dig up any specific information so the info I provided is just speculation.

Good luck.

I have a very broad question for the MPs here. I was speaking with an ex MPO, now a civilian at my unit and we were just chatting about the branch and he was saying that even before he released to take the jammy job that the branch had a bit of an identity crisis. He suspects even more so now with standing up of the Director General of Security, previously stuff done mostly by the Provost Marshall.

I know I'll be asked what I know about what the branch does during my possible interview, I've done tons of research, and there's really not much point. To ask any CF Mbr who is not MP, because we all know the majority of ppl don't seem to like MPs.

Anyways, my question is....  what do you do as an MP, what is your mandate, to you what is the purpose of the branch?

Might be over stepping or wishful thinking but, anyway I could be a fly on the wall with that PM? I am just waiting for my interview and all prep info would be grateful.
