I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I searched for this topic, but couldn't find previous replies so if this is a repost I apologize. I'm trying to get an idea of what the law enforcement specialties in each branch do, and I've had some success with the others, but I can't find almost anything on the Marine MPs. I saw the official line on the website, but can anyone tell me what the daily duties would likely include? Is it mostly static posts (gates and the like), or is there a lot of moving patrol work? Also, are the MPs likely to be the law enforcement for most naval bases as well, or just Marine bases? Lastly, is the privatization of military law enforcement and security as much of a concern for Marines as for the security specialties in other branches? Also, I grew up in an Air Force family (extended, not parents) so I have a decent idea of what the USAF Security Forces do. If anyone has done both and can compare/contrast them, that would help me immensely. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
