Royal Navy Police

I am thinking of joining the rnp but can’t find any information on the role except whats on the royal navy careers website.
I want to know what they do on a day to day basis, the website talks about dealing with pirates, drug trafficking and international investigations but is this typical or a rare occasion? How much time do they spend at sea versus on base? Is it possible to join the normal police force from here if I decide to leave eventually?
does anyone have experience?

I'll be serious for once.
Never served afloat with RNP so can't help there, Boats and small ships didn't have them in my day.
Had a lot of dealings with them whilst a Police Sergeant at Weymouth, on the whole found them a decent bunch and very useful for prisoner escort back to civvy cells or for taking RN offenders off of our hands. I remember fondly a couple of the female ones. Work in the main seemed fairly mundane, but that may have changed in more recent times.
This will not be a easy route into the Civvy Police, times have changed, when I joined in the 1970's ex Servicemen made up a large number of the Force. Over the years this has changed and more and more Uni. graduates are being taken in. I believe that this is the Country and Forces loss. Think about who you would rather have with you in a violent situation, an Ex-Serviceman who has experienced the rough and tumble of life or someone with a Degree in Origami and Modern Dance.
Search through the site as Waspie has advised there's quite a bit of information there.

I like that term!! Might have to nick it for use in polite conversation! :)


Agreed! But is a Degree in Origami and Modern Dance that different to the mis-spent youth of some, albeit in reverse order?

"Twist".

"Fold."

Although I accept that that particular dance is no longer considered modern.
