                    what are some of the specifics? for instance, do they do patrols or only guard gates? do they handles corrections and court security? is it anything like "real" police work, or is it more of a glorified security guard? what are some of the laws they typically enforce? is there anything along the lines of investigative work?

                      Let's get a Marine up front here! If I (a retired soldier) had to answer, I'd say: Hell, yes, Marines are coppers. They enforce the rules and regulations of the Corps, local laws as applicable and fer sure are real cops.

                        10-98,
                        Why don't you ask your local Marine recruiter. But one thing, make damn sure you call him MARINE and not mainre.

                          I was in the Corps in the early 80's. I wasn't a Marine MP but I was Naval Air Facility Security Police on Andrews Air Force Base (I know. Very confusing but at the time half of the base was a Naval Air Facility - so they had their own PD). We enforced the local civilian laws and the UCMJ (Uniformed Code of Military Justice). We did uniformed patrols, building checks, searches & seizure and other "special details."
                          On a regular Marine base, I think the M.P.s do it all. They guard the gates, patrol, investigations,...everything - like a small city. But they are responsible for things like armories,

                            Sorry. I hit the wrong button. As I was saying, Marines MP are just like the other services. They handle all functions of Law Enforcement, plus some other stuff.

                              Sorry 10-98. I couldn't resist

                              Another question you want to ask is if Marine MP's have the combat field MP mission that Army MP's do.

                              The short story is that Army MP's have field duty and garrison duty. Garrison duty means acting like a cop/security guard on base.

                              Field duty is a combat mission. Army MP's are responsible for policing in the field behind friendly lines in wartime and they respond to incursions of enemy troops such as airborne drops and guerillas and engage them in battle until the Infantry can be mobilized.

                              If you are getting into MP's to prepare for a LE career you may want to take into consideration you may get put in a field untit that will do much less to prepare you for LE than a garrison unit.
