In addition, information is stored on computer media at the four Army Information Processing Centers located at: Chambersburg, PA 17201-4150; Huntsville, AL 35898-7340; Rock Island, IL 61299-7210; and, St. Louis, MO 63120-1798.

Categories of records in the system:

Information contained on the DA Form 3626 may be provided by paper record, the automated VRS, or the automated Vehicle Registration System/Installation Support Module (VRS/ISM).

Purpose(s):

To assist the commander in carrying out effective law enforcement, traffic safety, and crime prevention programs; to ensure compliance with Highway Safety Program Standards (23 U.S.C. 402) applicable to federally administered areas; to provide management data on which to base crime prevention, selective enforcement, and improved driving safety.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories of users and the purposes of such uses:

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. Start Printed Page 43430552a(b) of the Privacy Act, these records or information contained therein may specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3) as follows:

Information in this system may be disclosed to state law enforcement and motor vehicle departments for ascertaining or disclosing driver information and/or accident reports, and, in overseas areas, to the host country as required by the Status of Forces Agreement between the United States of America and the host country.

Safeguards:

Information is stored in locked containers or storage areas within buildings which are secured, and the system is accessed by designated persons having an official need for the information.

Regional Data Centers are contractor-operated under an Army approved security program. Contractor personnel participate in a security education program under the Regional Data Security Officer. Regional Data Centers are connected through a communications network to data processing centers at Army installations. Technical, physical, and administrative safeguards required by Army Regulation 380-19, Information Systems Security, are enforced at the installation data processing centers. Data are available only to installation personnel responsible for system operation and maintenance.

Access to information is also controlled by a system of assigned passwords for authorized users of terminals.

Retention and disposal:

Destroyed on transfer or separation of parking permit holder, or when permit is superseded or revoked, whichever occurs first. Traffic law enforcement records are destroyed 2 years after closing of the case.
