FORT BELVOIR, Va. (Dec. 30, 2014) -- Preventing and solving serious crime with an Army nexus is an active partnership between Army law enforcement professionals and the members of the community they serve.

With that in mind, special agents with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, or CID, want to remind Soldiers, civilians, and family members about how they can report a crime 24/7 to Army CID.

If someone would like to report a crime, is the victim of a crime, has information about a crime, or would like to speak with a CID Special Agent, contact the local CID Office or call

1-844-ARMY-CID (844-276-9243). You can also email CID at

"Crime doesn't occur in a bubble, especially in the Army," said Special Agent Mark Arnold, the chief of investigative operations for CID. "Law enforcement officers and the Army community must work hand-in-hand to fight serious crime and to help keep our families and our communities safe."

CID officials also are reminding the public that if you require immediate assistance, call 911 or contact your local military police.

"Whether it's a crime that has already happened or if someone thinks a crime is being committed, that one tip can make or break an investigation and help us bring those responsible to justice" Arnold said. "CID will always be here to help."
