Looking for a law enforcement career? The Army National Guard is looking for dedicated team members to serve their community, state, and nation as Military Police (MPs). We can assist with paying for college. We have paid training as you will earn $1,400 - $3,000 a month in training. The National Guard assists in natural disaster relief along with overseas ventures.

MPs support battlefield operations through circulation control, providing area security, conducting prisoner of war operations, supervising civilian internee operations, and carrying out law and order operations. MPs also support the peacetime Army community protecting critical resources, implementing crime prevention programs, and preserving law and order.
