Azure on lines of latitude and longitude the figure of a Haida watchman Or embellished Sable and Gules, all within an annulus Sable inscribed MILITARY POLICE SECURITY SERVICE • SERVICE DE SÉCURITÉ DE LA POLICE MILITAIRE in letters Or;
SECURITAS PER VIGILANTIAM;
The globe represents the mandate of the unit to protect Canadian diplomatic missions abroad. In Haida totem poles, the watchman figure is often seated at the top to protect the adjacent long house. Thus, the watchman figure represents the important security work that the service performs.
This Latin motto means "Security through vigilance".
