Concept art of an Army military police.

Military police (MPs) are concerned with security operations.[1] Their duties include defending and policing military installations, providing security in order to ensure freedom of movement for other military units during combat operations, management of prisoners of war, controlling access to highly sensitive areas,[2] and close personal protection of senior military officers. While MPs do not function as frontline combat troops, their duties regularly bring them into engagements with enemy forces.


Most branches of the UNSC Armed Forces maintain their own military police forces, including the UNSC Marine Corps, Army, Navy[3] and the Spartans.[4] The Office of Naval Intelligence's Beta-5 Division also has its own military police force.[5]

ODST MPs formed a security detail for John-117's testing of the Mark V MJOLNIR Armor in August 2552.[1]

The helmet used by the Beta-5 military police has also been adopted for use with the MJOLNIR armor, and is also used in conjunction with the UNSC Marine Corps and UNSC Army armor systems as the default enclosed helmet.[5]

After the Human-Covenant War, the RAIDER-class Mjolnir became the unofficial standard for Spartans assigned to military police duties.[4]

They didn't salute, and their hands rested on their holstered sidearms. They stared straight ahead, but Wagner knew that if he twitched the wrong way he'd be shot first and questioned later.")
