The Marine Corps Law Enforcement Program (MCLEP) offers competitive salaries, exceptional benefits, eligibility into the Federal Employee Retirement System (FERS), and opportunities for advancement. The MCLEP provides the highest quality Police and Security services to Marine Corps Installations. Our federally accredited program has something for everyone. We encourage you to continue reading and see if you have what it takes to serve and protect the greatest fighting force the world has ever known.
The Marine Corps initiated a civilian police force, MCLEP, in 2005 at our logistic bases in Albany, GA and Barstow, CA, and our support facility on Blount Island in Jacksonville, FL. In 2007, the Marine Corps fully implemented MCLEP increasing the security and police services aboard installations with professional civilian police officers.
In 2013, the Marine Corps Police Academy received the Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) and it has since been reaccredited as of 2018. From the Basic Police Officer Course to the Police Commanders Course, the Marine Corps Police Academy provides higher learning and progressive training over the spectrum of law enforcement duties.
Today, there are over 900 men and women who have answered the call and proudly wear the Marine Corps Police Officer badge. From the Islands of Hawaii to the sunshine state of Florida; in the mountains, high desert, and coastal areas of California to the metropolis of Northern Virginia; from sunny Arizona to the friendliest people anywhere of Albany, Georgia, with the Big Easy of Louisiana in between, civilian police officers are serving their country, their community, and the Marine Corps. And, unlike some federal law enforcement agencies, MCLEP is unique and allows you to choose where you want to work. Movement from one installation to another is 100% up to you!
