MPD Services

The MPD provides military personnel support services to all Army units assigned to Fort Detrick. The division also provides identification cards and Defense Eligibility Enrollment Reporting System updates for all military service members, active duty, Reserve component, retirees, and their family members.

The office also provides identification cards to Fort Detrick civilian employees and contractor personnel. Veterans Affairs benefits counseling is available to all military service members and their families one day of the month. Please call extension 301-619-7311 for an appointment.


All Soldiers reporting to units serviced by Fort Detrick MPD must report to their unit of assignment first. The assigned sponsor will escort the Soldier to MPD located in the Community Support Center, 1520 Freedman Drive Room 139A, to pick up the installation In-processing Checklist. The Soldier must report with a copy of their PCS orders and leave form signed out from their last unit and signed in by their Fort Detrick gaining unit. All Soldiers must be in duty uniform.

Reassignment Processing

Soldiers being reassigned to other installations must attend a mandatory reassignment briefing coordinated by the Reassignment Section. During that time, the process is explained, and representatives from each agency involved in assisting Soldiers in relocating (i.e. ACS, Transportation, Legal, TriCare, Barquist Medical) will present a briefing.


PCS: Soldiers are eligible to pick up their Installation Out-Processing Checklist (DA Form 137-2) ten working days prior to the start date of their leave. The Soldier must provide a copy of their approved leave form and orders. Soldiers will not be able to final out until 1 day prior to the start of their leave. All Soldiers must be in duty uniform.

Separation / Retirement

Soldiers that are separating/retiring will receive their installation clearing papers during their initial appointment.
