What To Expect During Military Investigations

When a military service member is accused of being involved in misconduct or a criminal situation, you may find yourself being investigated. These investigations can take place in different ways. Knowing how you are being investigated and who is conducting the investigation is crucial in determining what course of action to take.

The most common types of military investigations are:

  • Law enforcement investigations: All military branches have law enforcement organizations to police and provide security to the local installations. These entities investigate violations that are similar to civilian misdemeanors.
  • Military Criminal Investigation Organizations (MCIOs): For more serious criminal offenses and misconduct, every branch of the military has its investigative organizations to investigate accusations and gather evidence to prosecute wrongdoers. These MCIOs include the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), the Army Criminal Investigative Division (CID), the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI), and the Coast Guard Investigative Service (CGIS).
  • Command investigations: Commanding officers have the authority to conduct their internal investigations. Initiated by authorities such as the commander or Inspector General, command investigations independently investigate misconduct and violations of the UCMJ. These investigations may be fact-finding avenues for issues within the unit or investigations into misconduct that may not yet have enough evidence to warrant a criminal investigation by law enforcement.

No matter the type of investigation you are facing, it can be a very stressful and nerve-wracking experience that could potentially put your military career and reputation at risk. During the investigative process, it is vital to exercise your right to remain silent and to have an attorney present. The pressure of wanting to give a statement or telling your side of the story could affect the outcome of your situation.

You can’t afford to sit idly and hope for the best or feel secure that you will be vindicated. Move quickly to protect your rights and future by retaining Attorney John Malek, an aggressive and knowledgeable military investigation attorney.
