Insignia Description
A metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86cm) in height overall blazoned: Vert, an owl affronté Or, holding in its beak a pair of scales of the like. Attached below the shield is a green scroll inscribed "JUSTITIA ET VIRTUS" in gold letters.

Symbolism
In the green and gold of the Military Police, the teaching functions of the organization are aptly illustrated in the wisdom of the owl holding in its beak the scales of justice. The objectives of the students are symbolized by the parchment scroll or diploma sealed with the approval of the school, while the martial feature is indicated by the mailed hand. "JUSTITIA ET VIRTUS" (Justice and Valor) is expressive of the purpose of the School and of the characteristics of the personnel.

History
The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the Military Police School on 6 May 1948. It was redesignated for the Provost Marshal General's School on 8 Feb 1952. The insignia was redesignated for the U.S. Army Military Police School on 28 Jan 1965.
