To change information
Description
On a dark green oblong arched at top and base 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in width overall a light green globe with dark green gridlines bearing a 5-pointed yellow star throughout and issuing from the lower edge of the globe to the height of the lateral arms of the star a yellow acute angle bearing a dark green arrowhead throughout its length with the lower edge of its blades coinciding with the lower edge of the star; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border.

Symbolism
Green and gold are the colors used for the US Army Military Police, and a star is emblematic of that branch of service. A star also connotes leadership and authority. The arrowhead is a symbol for military preparedness and protection. All of the above, along with the globe, symbolize the overall mission, capabilities and operational sphere of the organization.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 16th Military Police Brigade on 16 July 1981. It was amended to add the Airborne Tab on 23 February 1982. It was amended to delete the airborne tab effective 16 October 2008. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-665)
