Administrative Action. It also acts as a forwarding document for the following:
o DD Form 1805, Violation Notice.
o DA Form 3946, Military Police Traffic Accident Report.
These forms are discussed later in this lesson along with other forms and responses that are generated
from the DA Form 3975.
THE MILITARY POLICE REPORT DA FORM 3975 AND SUPPORTING FORMS
Completing the Form.
a. MPR number. This number consists of three groups of digits separated by hyphens. For
example, MPR# 00287-97-MPC002 is one report number. The first set of numbers is called the
sequence number and consists of five digits. The number is assigned as the incident is reported to the
MP station. The first MPR of the calendar year is assigned the number 00001. In your example, the
MPR sequence number means it is the 287th case. The sequence numbers start at 00001 on the first
calendar day (Jan 1) and ends on the last calendar day (Dec 31) of the current year.
(1) The second set of numbers is the year suffix. This is a two-digit number. It represents
the calendar year in which the report is processed. In our example, the year suffix is 97. This means the
report number 00287 was in 1997.
(2) The last element of the MPR number is the Military Police Code (MPC) number assigned
to the element reporting the offense. The MPC number consists of the letters "MPC" followed
immediately by a three-digit numeric code. In your example, MPC002 represents the provost marshal
for Ft. Meade, MD. MPC codes are found in AR 190-45 (the table from AR 190-45 listing all MPC
numbers is contained in this subcourse). Therefore, the full MPR number is 00287-97-MPC002.
b. Report Date. This is the date the report was prepared for final distribution. Use the six-digit
format for dates in all blocks on this form, except in the details of the report on the back of the form. In
Figure 2-1, the date of the report is 970710. So far we know that there have been 287 MPRs processed
between 1 Jan 97 and 10 Jul 97.
c. USACRC Control Number. This is an alphanumeric number separated into four groups by
hyphens. This number is used when reports are forwarded to the United Stated Army Crime Records
Center (USACRC). Only specified offenses have a Crime Records Center (CRC) number.
(1) A report requiring notification to the Crime Records Center will receive a CRC number.
In Figure 2-1, there is a CRC number. This report does require that the CRC be notified. A discussion
on reportable offenses follows at the end of this lesson.
