U.S. Army Military Police Corps Regimental Distinctive Insignia
U.S. Army Military Police Corps Regimental Insignia
The Military Police Corps Regimental insignia was approved on 3 July 1986 for use by soldiers affiliated with the Military Police Corps. All Corps Regimental insignias are worn over the right breast pocket on the Class A uniform signifying each service member’s unique branch of service.
The Military Police Corps Regimental insignia displays the colors green and yellow, which are traditionally associated with the Military Police Corps. The balance in the middle of the insignia is symbolic of equal justice under law, the key signifies security, and the sword embodies the military. The crossed pistols are the symbol of the Military Police Corps mission: to uphold the law and to keep order. The motto "ASSIST PROTECT DEFEND" reflects this mission.
With special training in security and police operations, the US Army Military Police Corps provides crucial support to our troops across the globe. Whether they are engaged in police intelligence, law enforcement, base security, resource control, or resettling dislocated civilians, Military police play a wide and varied role in today’s armed forces.
Military Police units are multipurpose, used all over the world. They are widely trained in law enforcement, the Uniform Code of Military Justice, hand to hand combat, and small arms, but your average MP unit is expected to be able to accomplish anything a commander needs at a moment’s notice.
