Evaluation of Fingerprint Card and Final Disposition Report Submissions by Military Service Law Enforcement Organizations

The objective of this evaluation was to determine whether the Military Services Law Enforcement Organizations (LEOs) had submitted:

• a Federal Document 249, “Arrest and Institution Fingerprint Card,” for Service members convicted of qualifying offenses (hereafter referred to as “convicted offenders”) listed in DoD Instruction (DoDI) 5505.11, “Fingerprint Card and Final Disposition Report Submission Requirements,” between January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2016, to the Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) for entry in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Next Generation Identification (NGI) database and,

• an FBI-Department of Justice (DOJ) Form R-84, “Final Distribution Report,” if required, for Service members convicted by court-martial of qualifying offenses between January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2016, to CJIS for entry in the NGI database.1

The Military Service LEOs are the Army Criminal Investigation Command, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Army Military Police, Navy Security Forces, Air Force Security Forces, and Marine Corps Military Police and Criminal Investigative Division.
