Possibly, but the civvy police are MUCH better at managing (deliberate?) fukcups with subtlety; if one can believe the report, the incompetence shown here was unbelievably crass and obvious. Perhaps senior RMP should go on the senior command course at the National Police College?
IMHO all criminal acts perpetrated in the UK should be investigated by the civil police. However the Armed Forces do need their own police function when outside the jurisdiction of UK criminal law.Its about time Service police were disbanded and all offences were investigated by actual police.
I guess that presents some logistical difficulties. If the offence takes place ashore, then it could be dealt with by the local police.Basically, yes. But there are probably quirks to that.
I believe, if anything serious happens onboard then the ships reggies/cox'n initially deal with it whilst SIB get flown out/come onboard. really serious then gets handed over to Civ Pol.I guess that presents some logistical difficulties. If the offence takes place ashore, then it could be dealt with by the local police.
If onboard the the Ship's office/Executive staff could deal with it as if they are HR. Verbal warnings, written warnings etc. If serious then..... no idea really. A bit of a quandary.
