This redesign consolidates emergency response elements for better efficiency and effectiveness.
The Provost Marshal Office, and units of the 16th Military Police Brigade, provide comprehensive law enforcement, military police and investigative support to the Fort Bragg community. The collective support program is a robust effort to ensure the safety, security and quality of life of each resident, Soldier, civilian and visitor. The importance of a viable MP support structure cannot be overstated, and the level of support provided reflects the commands commitment to Soldiers and their Families. The significant investment of MP resources to the installation is a key factor in the high quality of life and sense of security of our Army Families. Military Police Soldiers patrol the post day and night in radio equipped patrol vehicles. All Military Police Soldiers are easily recognized by the distinct brassard with the letters MP worn on their left shoulder. Parents are urged to tell their children that they can always get help or information from a military policeman. The PMO is the focal point for all criminal complaints and traffic investigations.
