I would highly recommend going through a civilian police academy. Even if you have 20 years of of military police experience. The two jobs are similar, but not the same. Everyone can benefit from additional training. And from a legal perspective this will reduce the liability of the Agency. If something bad happens and the opposing legal team starts looking into your training, you want to have the same training standards. I went through a Civilian Police Academy back in 1994. And when I retire, IF (BIG IF) I decide to go back into LE work, I would not be opposed to going back through. A lot has changed since 1994.
