Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas

There's a few of those mondeos around, their horse unit have one too

Most of the Mondeos are used for transporting senior officers i.e. GOC and above. I have only ever seen MPs in FFR's or on bikes.
To be honest I never seen MPs in plain clothes.

Plain clothes PAs used to do random searches of Billets when I was in the RDF.

I never had the PA make a call to any of the camps I have been on. I dont think many would have made to trip down to Bere Island, well not when I was on camp there. Never came across them in Kilworth either apart competition being held there, now most of the time we were in Kilworth, we were out on the ground or out there on the ranges for ARPs or shooting team practice. Now Ballast may have come across them more than I have in recent years.

Came across it in Kilworth once and Bere Island once. They got quite a hall of contraband if I remember correctly! They did random drug testing on the Bere Island trip.

I remember doing the camp in the Glen and got sent down to Wexford for saving private Ryan as they needed extras. (yes I am famous!) Any who they had PAs in an unmarked mondeo gong around the town that night. A large row did start in the town that night between the locals and our lads. Garda and PAs were there.

I got a broken nose that night but that's because I fell out of my safari bed...

Well that's what I told the medic at the MAP
He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster.

Its very different over here, we have the DPU or Domestic Policing Unit and then the Operations Policing Unit,
The DPU are very much like your local Police and the OPU are deploying for overseas operation.

Do MP's in Oz have powers outside of Militaty Facilities Marc?

Yes mate we do have certain powers, but they are very limited and only in relation to arresting in regards to 'finds committing an indictable offence'. I have made several arrests outside and the local police have been more than happy.

I've just seen a military police unit parked on Garda only ramp on motorway. Two MP's doing a speed check. Surely there won't be many military vehicles passing them

That the one on the N7 around Kill? Fair few military vehicles out and about today, perhaps to do with the rotation to the Golan Heights?

You'd be surprised how many military vehicles travel around the roads
I think the speed limit for the military is 50 or 80 kmph, correct me if I am wrong please, but its below the national limits

ive never seen the PA's doing speed checks on the M7
He who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been before
