READY WHEN CALLED.
Green and yellow are the colors traditionally associated with the Military Police Corps. Black alludes to determination, power and protection. The green peaks recall the mountainous terrain around Asheville, North Carolina, the headquarters location of the unit. The peaks also highlight the seven values of the U.S. Army: loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage. The scale, pistol and fasces are adapted from the Military Police regimental coat of arms. The fasces has been the symbol of authority throughout the ages. The scale represents justice and fairness. The pistol, Harper's Ferry armory issue, is the traditional Military Police symbol and underscores the Military Police Corps mission to uphold the law and keep order. The three stars and embattlements refer to the three words on the Military Police regimental insignia: Assist, Protect and Defend. The embattlements represent strength and defense.
The crest is that of the North Carolina Army National Guard.
The coat of arms was approved effective 1 September 2003.
