Korea Field Office (CID), 19th Military Police Battalion (CID)
The Korea Field Office (CID), an element of the 6th Military Police Group, was activated on 14 November 2008, concurrent with the inactivation of the 19th Military Police Battalion (CID). As part of the Korean peninsulas' transformation, the Korea Field Office was established to lead all CID investigative operations. The activation of the Korea Field Office ensured that commanders would continue to have the same level of commitment, support and cooperation that they received while the 19th Military Police Battalion had been in Korea.
As of 2009, the 2 detachments assigned to the Korea Field Office (CID), the 20th and 21st Military Police Detachments, were dispersed to 3 locations each. The 20th Military Police Detachment had elements at Camp Carroll, Camp Henry, and Camp Humphreys. The 21st Military Police Detachment had elements at Camp Casey, Camp Red Cloud, and co-located with the Korea Field Office headquarters at Yongsan Garrison.
