On 21 Feb 2020, LCol Adam Battista, Commandant of the Canadian Forces Military Police Academy had the pleasure of presenting a scholarship cheque on behalf of the CMPA to Miss Meghan Ridley, who was accompanied by her Father CWO Dave Ridley, Academy CWO.
In addition to a solid academic performance, Meghan demonstrated a strong community and school involvement with multiple organizations. Meghan “considers giving back to your community to be one of the most significant accomplishments a young person can have” Her most noteworthy involvement is the 250+ hours she has devoted to the local Hospital Emergency Room. She volunteers weekly and helps the nurses, patients and visitors in any way possible.
Meghan has also volunteered as a coach for a local Under 9 girls Lacrosse Team where, as a coach, she is able to not only motivate the young girls, but is able to act as a positive role model, mentor and leader to these young girls. She further volunteers her time once a week as a Teacher’s assistant for predominantly grade 6-8 students. Specifically, she works with young children who have learning disabilities or those who are struggling with the educational material.
Meghan aspires to be working in the pharmaceutical field which requires a lengthy amount of education and finances. She will start this long journey this fall at Queen’s University where she will go into her first year of her undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Engineering and then in her second year, she will specialize in chemical engineering.
Congratulations Meghan, your scholarship is certainly well deserved!

The MP Kit shop has finally received the smaller 2 x 2 inches CADPAT Close Protection (CP) Qualification badge patch with Velcro backing.
There are now 2 Sizes of patches available.
Large Size measuring 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches is great for mounting in shadow boxes or displays, worn on vests or ball caps.
Smaller size measuring 2 x 2 inches which is the official size for wearing on the CADPAT uniform by serving members
Initially, when attempting to fabricate the CP Patch, we were advised by our supplier that due to the extensive detail required for this patch, the smallest patch possible would be the 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches patch.
Our suppler, who is the same for CANEX and the CF, has now designed the newer and smaller version so that it meets the current CF Regulations on Qualification badge sizes.
Any currently serving member, who purchased the larger size patch believing it was an authorized patch may, from their "Forces email account" contact the Kit shop manager at firstname.lastname@example.org for a replacement - please include your invoice number if possible.
The management and staff of the MP Kit shop apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused.
Serving Members: There is a CANFORGEN out ref the placement of badges on CADPAT and authorized providers.
