The Canadian Military Police Association (CMPA) Retirement Credentials are a symbolic memento offered to former members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Military Police Branch in recognition of their unique qualifications and contribution to both the CAF and the Canadian policing fraternity. The CMPA Retirement Credentials are available to former MP Members who meet specific criteria. Police services throughout North America make it a customary practice to issue replica credentials. While police credentials traditionally symbolize the special authority vested in the holder the CMPA Retirement Credentials are intended only as a memento of service and they convey no legal authority whatsoever.
