The Marine Corps is always looking for a few good people. If you have pride in yourself and what you do, the Marine Corps Civilian Police may be for you.
The Marine Corps is looking for a few good people. In fact, they are looking for many good people. In June of 2007, the Marine Corps adopted a plan to begin the hiring of approximately 1,200 Civilian Police Officers. This expansion of civilian policing reduces the operational stress on Marine Corps Military Police and enhances security and police services across the Marine Corps.
Since 9/11, all branches of the military have identified greater requirements for police and security to protect the property and the people that are responsibility for the defense of the nation. Limitations on growing the active duty force have resulted in the hiring of civilians to provide Security and Law Enforcement services across the Department of Defense.
The Marine Corps initiated a Civilian Police force in 2005 and has established Marine Corps Police Departments in Albany, GA, Jacksonville, FL, and Barstow, CA. At the close of FY11, there are over 800 Police Officers working alongside their Marine Military Police counterparts at Marine Corps Police Departments across the United States. The police officer hires continue with a target of hiring 200 in FY12. After FY12, as the requirements increase and replacements are needed, we will continue to hire for the foreseeable future. These new police officers will be working side-by-side with Marine Corps Military Police at Marine Corps Installations across the United States.
