You can do RMP reserve and RAF police reserve (tactical provost wing) If you have a look on the RAF reserve website It does say you can specialise In CP. I have spoken to the RAF reserve police on the phone about a year ago with a view to moving services, the stuff the bloke on the end of the phone was telling me to do with there training and the things they get up to did sound very interesting.

Hostage negotiator on here might be able to shed a bit more light on them (unless I have It wrong what he does for a living In which case I apologise for name dropping)

Just In case you did not see It In the RMR section

RMP is known better as been the Royal Military Police - Red Caps, that blonde lass played one on tele years ago!

I believe the Royal Marines still have there own police...

Sniper and CP are quite different, one your lying around with just your oppo for days waiting for a shot the other you work in larger teams moving around ofter overtly and sometimes covertly...

TA certainly don't do sniper training anymore, and I would be extremely surprised if they were allowed to undergo CP training with the RMP. There is simply not enough return for the Army on the very expensive training that they would be giving a part-time soldier.

You sound like you want to be looking at 21/23 SAS, that's about the only chance you get to do sneaky beaky work in the reserves.

This Is a extract from the RAF reserve website In the police section.

Opportunities exist for specialist training courses in air transport security, close protection and other disciplines

Not sure what they mean by this but you could give them a call.

The TA did do a sharp shooters course but I believe this has now stopped.
