Post SDSR Force[edit]

From Source Secretary of State - "The measures are being progressed as they are developed. The furthest advanced are changes to the MoD Police headquarters and management structure, the cost of which will reduce by 41 per cent. These include: cutting the number of divisions from five to two;

1. The Force Command structure was changed from 5 Geographic to two functional divisions on 1 April 2012. "Nuclear Division" and "Territorial Division". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pilotglider (talkcontribs) 14:30, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I can see the "cutting the number of divisions from five to two" part in the source at this source but where are you getting that they will be called "Nuclear Division" and "Territorial Division" from?
Equally, where is the reliable source for the separation of the MDP and MGS and disbandment of MDPGA? Pol430 talk to me 14:51, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
The change took place on 1/4/2012 and they ARE called Nuclear and Territorial Division. Once MDP put contact details online this section will be updated with the New Div HQs. Remembering that Internet sources will take time to appear online and the current paper source 'Police Almanac' will take over a year to be updated. With regards to demise of MDPGA here is a MGS source (which is already out of date,at Feb 2012, as decision re MGS move to DIO has now been confirmed by MoD) SourcePilotglider (talk) 13:35, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
So what your saying is that, for the present time, the information on the new divisions is not verifiable. Such information therefore has no business being in the article (for the present time); however, I will refrain from reverting it because I happen to know that it is true. Note however, that Wikipedia is concerned with verifiability, not truth... Pol430 talk to me 11:21, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

MDPGA Wethersfield.[edit]

With the MDPGA now gone, the MDP HQ is still to be known as MDPGA Wethersfield for the immediate future . This is because the MoD do not want money to be 'wasted' on rebranding, so existing signage etc will be staying for the time being. The site is now known officially as MoD Wethersfield, (but may well become MDPHQ Wethersfield later) but all documentation and the entrance sign will still say MDPGA Wethersfield. Hence it has been left as it is in the article. Relishmez (talk) 22:12, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
