Can not speak for other Branches but I loved my time in the USAF as a Military Working Dog Handler (K9 Cop). I highly recommend it!

Richard’s Answer

I've always had a special affinity to the U.S. Marine Corps, as I spent 16 years on active duty!! My MOS was a 5811, a Military Police Officer. As a Marine I had the opportunity to observe all branches of service at the duty stations i was assigned to. I engaged with the Navy's Shore Patrol while stationed in the Phillipines, I attended several courses at Air Force Bases working closely with the AF Law Enforcement, and worked with the Army's Military Police while Deployed to Iraq. Every branch of service law enforcement provided base security, enforced traffic regulations and responded to all types of crimes committed on the bases. Marines are always looked to as the best of the best, they are highly disciplined, organized and respected by the communities they serve. Whatever branch you choose you must meet ASVAB scores, attend a Military Police course, and pass background check. Lastly if you did any type of illegal drug besides marijuana you will be disqualified from becomming an Military Police Officer.

Richard recommends the following next steps:

Check with your local military recruiter
Set a date to take your ASVAB test
Weigh your options as to which branch of service to enlist
Make goals regarding your choice

Mark Francis’s Answer

Assuming that you are asking specifically about the United States of America’s military, all of the services have their own versions of policing entities with different primary focuses. One entity is focused on policing actions in deployment scenarios, another entity is focused on policing domestic military installations, and another entity is focused on criminal investigations. Using the Army’s examples…One is the Army-wide branch of service called the “Military Police” that is focused on policing actions in deployment scenarios; a “green suiter” soldier role. Another is each domestic army base’s civilian (non-Army) police department that is focused on policing that particular domestic military installation. And another is the Army-wide “Criminal Investigations Division” or CID that conducts in-depth criminal investigations. The “Military Police” route would be pursued via enlistment/commissioning into the Army and is a Soldier-first role. The domestic base policing option would be pursued as a uniformed civilian career route with a federal retirement plan completely different than the military’s retirement plan. The CID route has both military and federal civilian route options. None of these options are “better” than the other in regards to their missions; all are critical. But there are considerable difference’s as far as afforded benefits and retirement plans, which would deserve considerable comparison study if one was making a long-term decision. Hope this all helps.
