Freedom of Information Act & Privacy Act Division

Welcome to the Department of the Army Criminal Investigation Division Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act Division. The Freedom of Information Act is a federal statute that provides the public the right to request access to federal agency records.

This division is responsible for processing all Army CID investigations and military police reports pursuant to the FOIA and Privacy Act.

This office maintains Army CID investigations and U.S. Army Military Police Reports. ​If you are looking for criminal records related to another branch of service, contact the office responsible for that specific branch.

We do not maintain personnel records, medical records, or court/trial records.

We are obliged to disclose all of the record unless it or portions of it are exempt from disclosure by the ► Department of Justice Freedom of Information Act Exemptions.

A FOIA request can be made for any agency record and you may also specify the format in which you wish to receive the records.

A FOIA request does not require this directorate to do research for you, to analyze data, to answer written questions, or to create records in response to a request.

Media: If you are a member of the media or are looking to request your own records or records on another individual for personal use please fill out and submit an 
► Army CID FOIA request form. 

If you are the next of kin for a deceased Soldier and wish to request a copy of their investigation, fill out and submit a ► Next of Kin FOIA Request.


The Privacy Act is also a federal statute that requires that records or information about you to be accurate, timely, and relevant and 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.

A Privacy Act request will need to be filed if you would like to see what records we have on you, if any. You would also file a Privacy Act request to petition a change in your record to so that the information is accurate, relevant, timely, or any combination of the three.
