Have you ever dreamed of making an impact? How about serving your community, State, and Nation? As a Military Police Officer for the Army National Guard, you’ll do all of these things by protecting, defending, and upholding the law.

MPs support battlefield operations through circulation control, providing area security, conducting prisoner of war operations, supervising civilian internee operations, and carrying out law and order operations. MPs also support the peacetime Army community by protecting critical resources, implementing crime prevention programs, and preserving law and order.

About Ohio National Guard

The National Guard serves both state and federal governments. The difference between the Guard and other branches is that while Guard units are combat-trained and can be deployed overseas, they are just as likely to serve in their home communities—training just one weekend per month, and one two-week period each year.
