Organized on May 31, 1942, the 800th Military Police Battalion was quickly activated on June 4, 1942, at Fort Ord, California to support combat operations during World War II. The 800th saw action in two campaigns: New Guinea and Luzon. It was inactivated on May 31, 1947, in Japan.

The unit's patch is distinctive. It is shaped like an ax-head with a sword encased in an oak leaf. The ax-head denotes authority and security; the sword stands for duty, military strength and law enforcement; and the oak leaf symbolizes the oak trees at Fort Ord, California, where the unit was first activated.
