History of the 14th Military Police Brigade
The 14th Military Police Brigade played a major role in the defense of freedom since it was first activated as the 14th Military Police Group in Mannheim, Germany on 25 June 1965. The Group was reorganized 10 June 1968 at Fort Meade, Maryland to provide support to the nation’s capital until it was reactivated and returned to Germany as the 14th Military Police Group at Moehringen, Germany on 16 November 1981. It was reorganized and redesignated as the 14th Military Police Brigade on 16 August 1985 at Wilkin Kaserne, Kornwestheim, Germany.
The Brigade, comprised of the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, the 385th Military Police Battalion in Kornwestheim, and the 793rd Military Police Battalion in Nurnberg, supported VII (US) Corps with a powerful force ready to conduct rear combat operations, battlefield circulation control, prisoner of war operations and war-time law enforcement. The Brigade also provided trained military police for peacetime force protection in the thirteen military communities of the VII (US) Corps. The Brigade deployed with one battalion to Saudi Arabia in December 1990 in support of Operation Desert Shield while its remaining units worked with the Polizei and Feldjaegers to provide security for the soldiers and families left in Germany. When Operation Desert Storm commenced in January 1991, the Brigade commanded 21 units of active and reserve forces – 2,800 soldiers – until redeployed in May 1991. It was then inactivated at Kornwestheim, Germany on 17 March 1992 and reorganized at Mannheim, Germany on 18 March 1992 as the command and control headquarters for the 95th and 97th Military Police Battalions.
The 14th Military Police Brigade was later inactivated on 15 September 1994 at Mannheim, Germany. On 1 October 1999, as part of the move of the Military Police Corps Regiment from Fort McClellan, Alabama the Brigade was reactivated at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. In 1999, 14th Military Police Brigade contained the 701st Military Police Battalion, the 787th Military Police Battalion and the 795th Military Police Battalion. On 15 January 2007 to accommodate the surge of Soldiers the 796th Military Police Battalion was activated. The 796th Military Police Battalion was inactivated shortly after on 17 December 2008. On 24 May 2018, the 1st Battalion, 58th Infantry Regiment was reactivated at Fort Leonard Wood and assigned to the 14th Military Police Brigade to conduct basic combat training in support of the Army’s end strength increase. Yearly the Brigade trains thousands of Soldiers where it proudly upholds its motto, “Forge the Regiment”.
