The 89th Military Police Group was constituted in the Regular Army on 19 FEB 66 and activated on 15 MAR 66 in the Republic of Vietnam. The mission of the 89th MP Group was to provide general MP support for the III and IV Corps Tactical Zones. With the removal of US forces from Vietnam, the organization was inactivated on 21 DEC 71. On 13 SEP 72 the unit was activated at Fort Lewis, Washington.
The 89th Military Police Group was designed to command and control the operations of three to five MP Battalions and other assigned or attached units. Additionally, it provided a Provost Marshal Staff Section to the Corps headquarters when assigned as the senior military police organization.
The 89th Military Police Group remained at Fort Lewis until 21 FEB 76 when the colors were transferred to Fort Hood, Texas. On 16 JUL 81 the 89th Military Police Group was reorganized as the 89th Military Police Brigade.
