The Army Civil Liberties Program

The Army Privacy Office is responsible for management oversight of the Army-wide implementation of the Army Civil Liberties Program in accordance with Public Law 110-53 and DODI 1000.29.

The Army has worked to establish a proactive, effective program for Civil Liberties which meets the intent of the law and the requirements of the DoD. This includes drafting Army policy, developing training mechanisms for senior leadership, managers/supervisors, and the workforce, establishing complaint procedures, and reporting quarterly to the Defense Privacy, Civil Liberties, and Transparency Division (DPCLTD).

The program has been set for a comprehensive, Army wide program where awareness is key and there is a positive leadership environment at all levels to promote and protect the civil liberties of all who are touched by the Army mission.
