Ministry of Defence Police - 50th Anniversary

Mod Pol Anniversary

This year the Ministry of Defence Police (MDP) celebrates its 50th anniversary, after it was formed following the amalgamation of the Army Department, Air Force Department and Admiralty Constabularies on 1 October 1971.

A brief history of the Ministry of Defence Police is a new article on their blog outlining the story.

Phil Trendall, BTPHG Chair comments: “The MDP have quite a lot in common with BTP in that they have been formed by many mergers (although I suppose this is also true of most county forces). Operationally the force has a fair amount of interface with BTP, especially because they form part of the strategic armed policing reserve.”
