Thanks for that, most helpful.

Brother Emund Actually, I ran a search and came up with this thread. It went nowhere, so I 'woke it up' so-to-speak.
I guess I will never get the definitive answer on here, so I will make it up, without opening up a new thread.

And thanks to Nacho libre's input... that was MOST helpful

Khorne's Fist There have been mentions of provost troops and commisariat troops as well in various IG novels. They would be the same as MPs.

Seriously though, you're better off starting a new thread than necroing one three and a half years old.

Tawa Commissars are Political and Morale officers.

I'd say regiments/brigades would have dedicated Provost units etc as the Storm Troopers are too elite to be used picking up drunken Guardsmen on a Friday night

IG - Military Police?

OK, I guess from all the arguing and missing the point completely, we never actually got the answer.
So, as I need to know for a story I am writing, and as it is a few years later... are there Military Police (MP's) in the Imperial Guard?

If not... and let me stress this, we are not on board ships here, we are on dry land, let's say a planet and in a garrison town. Who keeps an eye on the Guard when they are off duty and letting their hair down in the bars and other less-desirable hostelries???
