U.S. Military Security Forces and Military Police Creeds

These three creeds are creeds of security personnel of the U.S. military.

Security Forces Creed

I am a security force member. I hold allegiance to my country, devotion to duty, and personal integrity above all. I wear my shield of authority with dignity and restraint, and promote by example high standards of conduct, appearance, courtesy, and performance. I seek no favor because of my position. I perform my duties in a firm, courteous, and impartial manner, irrespective of a person's color, race, religion, national origin, or sex. I strive to merit the respect of my fellow airmen and all with whom I come in contact.

Military Police Creed

I am a soldier and proud member of the United States Army Military Police Corps Regiment.

I am Of the Troops and For the Troops.

I believe there is no higher calling than to ASSIST, PROTECT, and DEFEND my fellow soldiers, their families, and the basic ideals of our Constitution that guarantee our freedom and our American way of life.

I am always ready to help individual soldiers retain or regain their dignity.

I assist commanders in performing their missions, safeguarding their commands, and maintaining discipline, law and order.

I am proud of the Military Police Corps Regiment and fully understand the awesome responsibility given to all military police soldiers.

At the same time, I am humble because I know that I am a servant of my country and my Army.

To perform my duties properly, my honesty, integrity, and courage must be balanced by competence, alertness, and courtesy.

I know I am constantly in the public eye and my behavior sets the standards of excellence of my fellow soldiers.

To my unit, my commander, and myself, I promise sustained, just and honorable support.

To my country, the Army and my Regiment, I promise the skills of my training, my physical ability, my mental initiative, and my moral courage, for I am a soldier in the MILITARY POLICE CORPS REGIMENT.

The Security Forces Prayer

Lord, you have called us to be guardians of a nation founded on your principles. Whatever our tasks as Security Force men and women, we do them to serve you and Our nation.

We are proud to accept the responsibility of this high calling.

We dedicated ourselves to our vocation, and ask for guidance and courage in aiding our people to live with dignity, in safety and peace. We know that true security comes from your presence, so we pray with the psalmist:

You bless those who obey you, Lord; Your love protects them like a shield.

Use us, O Lord, as shields for your people, reflecting your security and peace.
