Privacy and Civil Liberties

Notice: As a result of increases in the Health Protection Condition (HPCON) level, our offices are limited to mission-essential personnel only and maximizing the use of telework for other personnel. This means that we are unable to handle requests sent via traditional methods such as postal mail. During this time, we  can only respond to electronic inquiries while under elevated HPCON levels and request that  when sending information to the DHA Privacy and Civil Liberties Office or the DHA Freedom of Information Act Service Center,  please use the following addresses DHA.PrivacyOfficeMail@mail.mil or DHA.FOIA@mail.mil.

Please refrain from sending personally identifiable information or health related information as these mailboxes do not allow for your encrypted submission. However, in an abundance of caution, you may use the DoD SAFE (Secure Access File Exchange) via https://safe.apps.mil/ to upload and send your personal information. Please reference the above mailbox addresses for your submission. When using SAFE, we request that any personal information being transmitted must be encrypted prior to uploading and the decryption key must then be provided to the recipient(s) by a means other than SAFE. 

Thank you for your understanding during this time. We will update our webpage when we return to normal operations.
