The authority of law and the realm of the military are combined in the 18th Military Police Brigade Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, or unit patch. On a shield featuring a green field and a yellow border—green and yellow are the colors of the Military Police Corps—a sword is charged over a Roman fasces. The fasces is an ancient symbol of the authority of a magistrate to administer justice; the sword symbolizes the military nature of both the laws and their infractions, as well as the personnel enforcing them.

Headquartered at Grafenwoher, Germany, the 18th Military Police Brigade comprises the 709th Military Police Battalion and the 15th Engineer Battalion in addition to its Headquarters and Headquarters Company.
