The big question is what type of training are you and your Soldiers getting to help fill in this gap and how long is it taking? I do know this SSG, Bliss has training that some installations will not get due to “Civilians” still being in control of the MP’s. And this needs to be changed. TASER, Monadnock ASP, the MPH-900 ALPR, patrols carrying long guns due to “Active Shooters”, responding to the latter “training” and with Fort’s Bliss, Hood, Leavenworth and Bragg (correct me if I‘m wrong on the last please), some of these are already in place. With the interaction of how the MP’s act with others, SSG Wood’s I’m sorry to say this, but the last few times I have been on Fort Riley, the MP’s have been MIA. But I do know this, my son is an MP here at Riley (from Fort Bliss, and yes SSG L, he has asked me WTFO is going on here) and he’s been asked by fellow NCO’s to “Slow down and not be so aggressive”. He does his job and will write a citation when he sees a violation. The Soldiers here are not being trained like they should be nor are they taking it seriously. Why, the Civilians that are still in control at the top that DON’T want ant change and think Civilian Police need to be in charge all the time. My response, that’s the wrong answer.
