Royal Military Police
The Royal Military Police exist in order to deploy, they are distinct from their civilian counterparts as they have unique operational tasks that have no equivalence in civil society. The Royal Military Police deploy as part of the field army, both at home and overseas, in support of the full spectrum of national and multi-national, joint, multi-agency conflict, conflict prevention and post conflict operations.
Whilst other agencies can, and do investigate crime committed by or against members of the Defence Department, it is the Service Police alone who have the unique capability to deliver the full range of policing functions, throughout the spectrum of conflict, at home and abroad. The policing capability required by the Army in the UK, NI, Germany and other overseas Stations is provided by the RMP.
