The Canadian Association of Military Police Veterans (CAMPVETS) is a non-profit fellowship of current and former serving members of the Canadian Forces Military Police, which was formed on 19 November 2004. CAMPVETS is currently headquartered in the beautiful Annapolis Valley region of Nova Scotia, however, its membership stretches globally, whether it be retired members living in warmer climates, members currently serving in Canada, or our deployed members serving Her Majesty and Canada abroad on deployed operations, peacekeeping missions or with Canadian Embassies. CAMPVETS gets its technical support from a server centrally located in Ontario, which is managed by our infamous and much revered Webmaster - Andy.
We are very mindful of the sacrifices made by our predecessors in the Canadian Provost Corps, the Royal Canadian Air Force Police and the Royal Canadian Navy Regulating Branch, and equally proud of their hard earned traditions. It is from their legacies that the Canadian Forces created the current Military Police Branch, symbolized by the insignia of the Thunderbird. Within this site you will find links to other websites, which provide glimpses into our proud history, and we would invite all to enjoy them as well.
Our very popular guest book is open for public comment and view. We invite you to browse through it, and to comment if you wish, however, while we are very receptive to regimental rivalry, the odd hip-check, and good natured slamming, we frown on inappropriate language, personal attacks against any of our members (whether they deserve it or not), and of course any negative comments against Her Majesty.
We do accept digital photographs and scanned images of memorabilia relating to the CF Military Police, and endeavor to add them to the page. Our goal is to obtain a cross section of memories spanning the 37-year history of our current branch. As we grow, it is our hope to become a conduit for our retired members to contact each other, and to renew the friendships that can only be found in a police organization as unique as ours.
We look forward to watching this site grow, and to laughing at our computer screens as we read some of the more famous yarns being re-spun by our current and retired members. When I joined this institution years ago, I was told that one of the most important traits of a good policeman was a sense of humor, and we have all witnessed some infamous people within our trade openly flaunting those characteristics. Here is the place to relive the ones that can be told in public…we’ll save the ones that can’t for Mess Dinners and the like.
