Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, and disposing of records in the system:

Storage:

Paper records in file folders and electronic storage media.

Retrievability:

Name, SSN, date of birth, other names used, driver license, or incident number.

Safeguards:

Records are maintained in areas accessible only to PFPA law enforcement personnel who use the records to perform their duties. All records are maintained on DoD installations with security force personnel performing installation access control and random patrols. Common Access Cards (which contain the user's DoD Public Key Infrastructure Certificates) and personal identification numbers are used to authenticate authorized desktop and laptop computer users. Data in transit and at rest is encrypted and computer servers are scanned to assess system vulnerabilities. Specific firewalls are in place to control the incoming and outgoing data traffic by analyzing the data and determining whether they should be allowed through or not, based on applied rule set. User access is restricted to validated users and activity is regularly monitored. Systems security updates are accomplished on a regular basis. Records are secured in locked or guarded buildings monitored by Closed Circuit TV cameras and intrusion detection systems, locked offices (to include cipher locks), or locked cabinets during non-duty hours, with access restricted during duty hours.

Retention and disposal:

Non-criminal records are destroyed one year after case is closed.

Criminal records are cut off when a case is closed. Files are destroyed 15 years after the cut-off.

System manager(s) and address:

Deputy Director Integrated Emergency Operations Center, Pentagon Force Protection Agency (PFPA), 9000 Defense Pentagon, Washington, DC 20301-9000.
