On 6 April 1992, the RMP amalgamated into the Adjutant General's Corps (AGC), where they form part of the AGC's Provost Branch.Non-commissioned members of the RMP receive their basic training as soldiers at the Army Training Centre in Pirbright.A member of the Royal Military Police can arrest any individual in the UK whom he or she has reasonable grounds to believe to be a serving member of HM Armed Forces and to have committed a relevant civil or military law offence.The RMP also have police powers over personnel of the other two branches of the Armed Forces: the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force.
This includes, not exclusively, service dependents and overseas contractors sponsored by the British Army.
The Royal Navy Police and RAF Police also have reciprocal police powers over British Army personnel.
Where service personnel are deployed overseas, the Royal Military Police are often called upon to provide a complete policing service.
In 1926, they were fully amalgamated to form the Corps of Military Police (CMP).
In recognition of their service in the Second World War, they became the Corps of Royal Military Police (RMP) on 28 November 1946.
