Welcome to Camp Pendleton: Provost Marshal’s Office

Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is home to many brave men and women who dedicate their lives to fight our nation’s battles. While they are training and fighting abroad, service members and their families who reside on base need to feel safe. Camp Pendleton’s Provost Marshal’s Office is one of the primary organizations working to provide a safe environment on Camp Pendleton.

“We share a lot of similarities with a with a civilian police department in a town or municipality,” said U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Bryce Carter, the provost marshal with PMO, Security and Emergency Services Battalion, MCB Camp Pendleton. “We have a lot of the same responsibilities and we handle a lot of the same types of calls.”

Composed of approximately 300 Marines and civilians, large portion of PMO’s daily operations includes street patrols, guarding the installation’s gates and responding to emergency calls, but there are also smaller, dedicated sections with specialized mission sets.
