Team Info

The Konoha Military Police Force was — as the name suggests — the judicial organisation in Konohagakure. Initially believed to have been founded by the Uchiha,[1] in actuality, it was founded by the Second Hokage, Tobirama Senju, and was given to the Uchiha as a sign of trust and good faith between the Senju and themselves.[2] Tobi said that in their paranoia, the Uchia would come to see it as part of a collective conspiracy meant to keep them away from the seat of powers they felt they were entitled to.[3][3] Actually, Tobirama stated he did this in order to keep the Uchiha's emotions in check and have them benefit the village at the same time.[4]

Military Police Symbol

The symbol of the organisation.

Naturally, it consisted of mostly Uchiha clan members before their downfall because — as Itachi Uchiha put it — only strong shinobi were capable of bringing other shinobi to justice.[5] The last known leader of this organisation was Fugaku Uchiha. It is unknown what happened to the organisation after Itachi massacred the clan. In the anime, however, it was noted by the village's leaders that in future, members should be chosen via open selection instead of sticking to a single clan.[6]

Uchiha clan

The Konoha Military Police Force when Fugaku Uchiha was in charge.

The Konoha Military Police's purpose was to maintain the law in the village, regarded as "elite shinobi who monitor fellow shinobi". They did not have the authority of arresting Anbu members without a warrant, as the latter directly reports to the Hokage.[7] The symbol of the organisation was a four-point star with the crest of the Uchiha clan embedded into the centre and the attire of the police force consisted of the standard Konoha-nin attire with the symbol of the police force emblazoned on the shoulders instead of the regular Uzushiogakure symbol.
