AFDCBs are made up of representatives from various agencies on duty, including law enforcement, staff judge advocate, public affairs, fire and security, and health officials – with the garrison commander acting office of president. Law enforcement agencies outside the post are also welcome to attend.

The council makes recommendations to the post commander.

Commanders can ban establishments if there is a history of “misconduct, crime or other behavior that would be detrimental to the good order and discipline of our military,” said Major Provost Marshal John Farrell Fort Jackson.

According to Army Regulation 190-24, prohibition restrictions should only be invoked when there is substantial information that an establishment or area frequented by armed forces personnel has conditions that are detrimental to their ability to operate. health, safety, well-being, morale or morals. “

There are a wide variety of reasons why an establishment can be banned, including violent crime, illegal sales of alcohol, predatory lending, and unfair business practices.

“For example, if a soldier is going to buy a vehicle and his APR is outrageous. Something that is not in the best interests of the military, ”said Farrell.

The AFDCB goes through a specific process before registering an establishment on the list. First, the board must receive a complaint. Then, local authority board members investigate and send a memorandum to the offending company, informing them of the problems it is causing and the potential ramifications if it continues to do so.

The business owner can submit a rebuttal, meet with the board, or change the behavior.

If the business does not respond, it is placed on the list.

They could become permanent, Farrell added, but “before we do, we invite owners to come and meet with the board and discuss with us our concerns with their establishments and seek common ground – a way. to follow – which serves them both, as and ensures the safety of our military.

Even if an establishment goes bankrupt, it remains on the list, he said. “Many of these facilities that are banned are based on their address…. see them reopen a few months later with a different name, but maybe the same business owner and they often have the same problematic behaviors that we are looking for.

The AFDCB relies heavily on the input of local authorities who receive complaints and follow up on service calls in the various establishments.
The banned list helps ensure mission readiness.

“The mission of the military is to fight and win the wars of the nation,” Farrell said. “And in order to do that, we need to make sure that we have fit, strong, and well-groomed military personnel to answer that call if that call comes. Part of that is ensuring their safety and well-being, and that’s where the Armed Forces Disciplinary Review Board comes in.

(Editor’s note: Soldiers are reminded that they are “prohibited from entering establishments or areas declared closed” in accordance with AR 190-24. “Violations may subject the member to measures disciplinary in accordance with applicable service regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. ”)
