      Work Environment

      As an Enlisted Sailor working in law enforcement, you will have the chance to work in a number of environments. You can expect to work at shore stations in the United States and overseas; aboard ships; or as part of a maritime security squadron. In short, your assignments could take you anywhere in the world.

      Serving part-time as a Navy Reserve Sailor, your duties will be carried out during your scheduled drilling and training periods. During monthly drilling, Masters at Arms in the Navy Reserve typically work at a location close to their homes.

      For annual training, Masters at Arms may serve anywhere in the world, on a ship or at bases and installations.

      Take a moment to learn more about the general roles and responsibilities of Navy Reserve Sailors .

      Training & Advancement

      Upon completion of the initial 7-9 week Recruit Training (known as Boot Camp), those pursuing a Law Enforcement & Security role report to San Antonio, Texas, where they receive formal Navy technical training at "A" School for about 9 weeks. Here, they learn antiterrorism techniques, armed sentry/post standing techniques, crime prevention, military and civil law, communications, first aid, firearms deployment, and physical restraint techniques.

      Promotion opportunities are regularly available but competitive and based on performance. It's also important to note that specialized training received and work experience gained in the course of service can lead to valuablecredentialing and occupational opportunitiesin related fields.

      Most of what you do in the Navy Reserve is considered training. The basic Navy Reserve commitment involves training a minimum of one weekend a month (referred to as drilling) and two weeks a year (referred to as Annual Training) - or the equivalent of that.

      Masters at Arms in the Navy Reserve serve in an Enlisted role. Before receiving the ongoing professional training that comes with the job, initial training requirements must be met.

      For current or former military Enlisted servicemembers: Prior experience satisfies the initial Recruit Training requirement - so you will not need to go through Boot Camp again.

      For those without prior military experience: You will need to meet the initial Recruit Training requirement by attending Boot Camp for seven to nine weeks in Great Lakes, IL. This training course will prepare you for service in the Navy Reserve and count as your first Annual Training.
