Originally activated as the 8th Military Police Group on 26 July 1967, the 8th Military Police Brigade did not have an official Shoulder Sleeve Insignia until it received its current designation on 16 April 1996, when its 24-year period of in activation came to an end with its activation in Korea.

The green, yellow, red, and blue used in the 8th Military Police Brigade unit patch, which was worn with the Class A Green Service uniform, obviously cannot be discerned in the subdued versions designed for wear with the Army Combat Uniform, but of course appear in the Brigade’s Combat Service ID Badge (CSIB). Green and yellow are the branch colors for Military police; the base of the yellow sword touching the yellow sunburst reflects the unit’s search for truth and its readiness as a military unit. The red and blue taeguk refers to the unit’s 1996 activation in Korea.
