The Freedom of Information Act is a federal statute that provides you with a right to request access to federal agency records. We are obliged to disclose the all of the record unless it or portions of it are exempt from disclosure by any of nine exemptions contained in the law or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions.

If you are the next of kin for a deceased Soldier and wish to request a copy of their investigation please click here to fill out a records request form.

The great bulk of our records are that of criminal investigations. If you want to receive a copy of a criminal investigation report, please click here to fill out a records request form.

The Privacy Act is also a federal statute that, (1) requires that records or information about you be accurate, timely, and relevant and (2) except for certain situations we have posted in the Federal Register, bars us from disclosing information we have about you to anyone without your permission. You will want to file a Privacy Act request if you want to see what records we have, if any, on you or to request a change in your record to so that the information is accurate, relevant, timely, or any combination of the three.

If you want a copy of any record we may have about you, under the Privacy Act, please click here to fill out a records request form.

If you already have a U.S. Army Military Police Report or a U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division Report of Investigation in which you are mentioned, and wish to change it or information based on it, please click here to fill out a Records Change form.
