The Field Investigative Unit is a specialized unit that provides a full range of criminal investigative services and support within the Army, to include investigations of senior Army leaders, cases with national attention and other designated sensitive situations as directed by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division. The FIU also conducts investigations in the areas of contract and acquisition fraud within research and development, and testing and evaluations programs funded by the Army.
The U.S. Army Protective Services Battalion (CID) is headquartered at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The Battalion’s mission is to provide world-wide, executive-level protection to the Secretary of Defense, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, the Chairman and Vice Chairman, Joint Staff, the Secretary of the Army, the Chief of Staff of the Army, the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, the Chief National Guard Bureau, and their foreign counterparts on official visits to the United States and other Department of Defense High Risk Personnel as directed. Further, the Battalion provides executive level protection for Senior U.S. Army Commanders during war-time and contingency operations as directed.
The organization’s mission began when the 1st MP Detachment (CID) was given the mission of protecting the nations’ highest Department of Defense civilian and military leaders in the late 1960s during heightened unrest caused by the Vietnam War. In 1971, subsequent to the establishment of the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command as a major Army command, the Protective Services Activity (PSA), USACIDC, was established within HQ USACIDC to manage DoD protective missions. During the build up to the 1991 Gulf War, the PSA (CID) was reorganized as the Protective Services Unit (PSU) (CID), as the PSU was continually assigned more protected “principals” due to higher threat situations around the world. In October 2005, the unit was again reorganized as the Protective Services Battalion (CID), due to its ever increasing mission. In October 2007, the unit underwent its latest reorganization and became the U.S. Army Protective Services Battalion (CID).
Today, the Protective Services Battalion continues to send its CID Special Agents throughout the United States and around the world in furtherance of its continued mission in protecting our nation’s highest civilian and military DoD leaders. The Battalion continues to deploy Personal Security Officers with the mission of protecting Senior Army Commanders in Afghanistan, Kuwait, Africa, and Iraq.
