    We are coming up on two years in November since the US Army major opened fire on his own Troops and killed 13 and the major still doesn't have a trial date. Is there any question about the evidence? Another point that I was always curious about is why the Ft. Hood MP's couldn't handle the situation. Is it policy that civilian Police Officers respond to an emergency on Post?

    MP numbers are dwindling. The civilian LEOs outnumber the MPs at Quantico and Fort Belvoir by quite a few.

    Why not research the subject yourself and provide us the answer.

    Most of the guard duty was done by soldiers. When I was there in '85-'85

    The gates are manned by civilians and they are also doing street patrol. The main MP function has shifted to the operational arena and to force protection (FP) functions. At Marine Corps Base Quantico, an occasional Marine MP can be seen, but in smaller numbers than base police officers.

    The FBI has their own police force and has nothing to do with how MCBQ employs their MPs. I live just through the woods from the FBI Academy and am aboard Fort Belvoir weekly. Maybe the other installations are manned with more MPs, but I do not think so.

    In some situations they can but for the most part the MP's can take care of it, in the case of a mass shooting I can see why the civilian police were called. On alot of posts they do use civilian cops now because alot of Military Police are deployed, thats something to remember.

    When I was at Vandenberg Air Force Base the gates were manned by a civilian security company who the base contracted out, there were Air Force Security Police on base however Vandenberg had such a high deployment rate there were never enough SP's around to be able to cover the whole base.
