200 Military Police Command Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a green shield shaped device with point at base edged with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border, 3 1/2 inches (8.89 cm) in height and 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in width overall, consisting of a green globe with a white outline and gridlines superimposed by two yellow pikes in saltire throughout, in base a pair of black scales; overall a silver gray sword palewise point up.

Symbolism
Green and yellow are the colors of the Military Police. The shield has five sides to highlight the five Military Police functions: maneuver and mobility support operations; area security operations; law and order operations; internment and resettlement operations; and police intelligence operations. The pikes, former weapons used by guards, are crossed to symbolize cooperation, strength, and protection. The globe symbolizes the overall mission, capabilities, and operational sphere of the organization. The combination of the sword and scales of justice recall the duality of the military mission of armed security duties and upholding the law.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective 16 April 2008. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-946)
