Patch and Distinctive Unit Insignia
The 200th Military Police Command is the senior law enforcement unit within the U.S. Army Reserve. The subordinate elements of the 200th MP Command are comprised of military police units, and includes criminal investigation detachments, chaplains, historians and broadcasting detachments. Units are dispersed across the continental U.S. with major subordinate units to be located in California, Michigan, New York, and South Carolina. The formation of this command is a departure from the legacy structure of a strategic force in reserve with assigned chains of command based mostly on geography. The purpose of this command is to train, command and deploy units primarily by their functional capabilities.
The 200th Military Police Command was constituted March 6, 2006 (from the former 220th MP Brigade) in the U.S. Army Reserve as Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 200th Military Police Command. It was activated April 16, 2008 at Fort Meade, Maryland.
The 200th was formed as part of a transformation of the Army Reserve that saw units reorganized into strategically consolidated forces with similar functional capabilities. Nearly 97 percent of all Army Reserve military police assets are now commanded by the 200th.
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective 16 April 2008. The distinctive unit insignia was approved effective 16 April 2008.
