Vacant positions in the Military Police Corps (MP Corps)  are filled by serving members of the Permanent Defence Force and so no external recruitment campaigns are envisaged.  

Serving personnel, on successful completion of the required courses, are inducted into the MP Corps.  Such courses are ongoing and, in addition to the current training pipeline, further courses are being considered and another is due to commence shortly.  

 For operational secutity reasons it would be inappropriate to release the strength figures of the MP Corps.
