260 Military Police Command Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a white vertical rectangle 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width arced convexly at top and bottom and edged with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border, an arc of three red stars above two red horizontal bars surmounted by a green vertical sword, point up, bearing near its point a green balance bar and scale pans.

Symbolism
Green and yellow are colors traditionally associated with the Military Police Corps. The combination of the sword and scales of justice represents the duality of the Military Police mission, armed security duties and the upholding of the law. The red stars and bars on a white background are taken from the flag of the District of Columbia, home area of the unit. The flag of the District of Columbia in turn was based on the Washington family coat of arms.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 260th Military Police Brigade on 22 May 1986. It was redesignated, with description and symbolism revised, for the 260th Military Police Command effective 1 September 1992. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-723)
