Abstract:

The Inspector General, Department of Defense, published DoD Instruction 5505.7, Titling and Indexing of Subjects of Criminal Investigations in the Department of Defense, in May 1992. DoD Instruction 5505.7 establishes DoD policy for titling, i.e., placing the names and other identifying data of subjects and, to a lesser degree, victims and other significant incidentals in the title block portion of investigative reports, and indexing, i.e., entering the same data into the Defense Clearance and Investigations Index DCII. The purpose of titling and indexing is to establish an administrative system for the retrieval of criminal investigative files by subject name or other personal identifying data. This review was undertaken to meet the Inspector General, Department of Defense, standing need to review existing policy, and to address issues raised by both the Advisory Board on the Investigative Capability of the Department of Defense DAB and a congressionally authorized review by the National Academy of Public Administration NAPA.
