  • U.S.Army Military Police School

    Can anyone tell me what all you learn at MP school? How long is the (Law and Order) part?
    Do you get an MP Cert? And can you use this Police training to lateral over to a DOD Police job? Thanks

    AIT portion is roughly 10 weeks long with about 5 weeks L&O and the other 5 covering the combat support side. As for certificate you will get an MP Diploma that states you graduated MP school. The traing you will get will help get anothe LE job, but in most cases you will have to still attend a civilian/federal academy.

      Thanks for the response! Yeah, I've been through the Department of the Army Contract Security Guard Training Course which was 4 weeks and I hear it's almost the same training I recieved so atleast I'll be somewhat in the know.

        You'll be in the know from the front leaning rest position. Almost? Is that like if my aunt had balls she would be my uncle? It would nothing like what you recieved at wackenhunt, pinkerton, or allied barton.

        MP school would be closer in training and methology to blackwater (Xe), haliburton, or raytheon.

          Unless I'm mistaken, Florida is the only state in the country that accepts MP/Security Forces/Master-At-Arms school as a substitute for a civilian police academy. Most civilian police academies are measured in months, not weeks, so they don't consider the military training to be suitably applicable (which it really isn't). Additionally, all the civilian police departments I have experience with don't give a fig about actual MP experience. You'll likely get some sort of veteran preference, but they typically don't care if you were an MP or a warehouse clerk.

                The Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Board is pleased to announce it granted accreditation status to the U.S. Army Military Police School and the U.S. Army Civilian Police Academy at the April 22, 2010 meeting in Annapolis, Maryland.

                The U.S. Army Military Police School (USAMPS) is located at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, and is responsible for the training and education of over 20,000 students annually in the areas of basic and advanced law enforcement. In addition, the USAMPS provides special text manuals for guidance in training both military police and Department of the Army civilian police and guards. This guidance includes annual in-services, field training standards, and continuing education. The total military police population which the USAMPS supports is over 49,000.

                The U.S. Army Civilian Police Academy (USACPA), also located at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, is the sole training authority for all Department of the Army civilian police and security guards. The Academy was started in 2006 with two regional academies. The campus provides eight offerings of the program annually. In recent years, U.S. Army Military Police personnel have been deployed to high-threat areas in significant numbers. As a result, the Department of the Army has increased the number of civilian police and guards to protect Army garrisons and to guard critical secured facilities. The USACPA is used to provide the basic law enforcement skills required for these First Responders.

                FLETA Board Member Charlie DeVita commented that academies are the toughest to get accredited and complimented the Army accreditation team on being very strong with answers to all the Board Review Committee’s questions. He said he felt strongly that the men and women they train are doing a great job.

                To achieve accreditation, an agency must undergo a voluntary thorough assessment of their academy and/or program to ensure compliance with the FLETA standards. These professional standards were developed to increase agency effectiveness and efficiency. The standards address the following areas: Academy Administration; Qualifications and Development of Training Staff; Program Administration; and Program and Curriculum Development. To maintain accredited status, agencies are required to submit annual reports to the FLETA Board and participate in a reaccreditation process every three years.

                The FLETA Board is nationally recognized by federal law enforcement agencies, as well as stakeholders in law enforcement training. It is the Board’s goal to improve the federal law enforcement community with each accreditation, and the Board has now awarded 36 program accreditations and 12 academy accreditations.



                Does this mean that when someone enlist as a 31B MP and graduates the MP School there MP diploma will transfer over to other Federal Law Enforcement Agencies?

                  You need to go to www.FLETA.gov or contact FLETA at 912-261-3684. I'm sure they will give you the good scoop.
