we just returned from spring break to find our home broken into and alot stolen. and our kids beds had been slept in..people had sex in my kids bed. and then went to another kids room and took thier blanket. they laid out my families passport and ss cards on my bed but didnt take them. and the mp and pi didnt even take fingerprints. i was told they couldnt because they didnt have the capabilities to do that thing on post. i am contacting all news stations as well as state congress and senate about what i going on in this post. i want to know if there is anyone who this has happened to as well

That is extremely ridiculous the MP's couldn't take fingerprints.I would take it up the chain though. They sure are good at parking in a no parking lane at the px to get burger king. Lazy bums.

Yes civilian police do lift prints. Its not as complicated as you may think.Watch cops every once in a while. MPS are just glorified security guards nothing more and its a shame they are the ones who secure famlies while soldiers deploy. They deserve better.
until we need you huh

Need you for what? Hopefully not to lift prints or do any real police work. All your good for is giving out tickets then you have the nerve to drive like an idiot breaking many laws. And quit parking your big goofy MP mobile in front of the PX just to see you sitting in there eating at Burger King.

Civilian cops can lift prints! When I lived in Clarksville and my house was broken into and the city cops were able to lift prints! Fort Campbell seems to have gone down hill since I was there!

I have had numerous item's broken or stolen from my yard here on post. The MP's have come out and brought the ton's of paperwork we have to fill out. Although I understand there isn't much they can do as far as finding the person unless caught in the act. I do beleive that there could be better security. The parks behind our houses need lighting and the side walks behind the houses need lighting. People are always at these parks late at night doing things they shouldn't. I and my neighbors have found used condom's at these parks where our children play. I've literally showed these things to the housing reps and all i get in return is " It's up to the MP's to patrol the parks". So if that's the case, get to patroling! We've all seen the on the bikes in large number's hanging out at the parks for longer then an hour. Holiday's are the worst. Beef up patrol please. Even at night time! For the most part, I don't have any issies with MP's, they have been nice to me and my family but they can only do so much. It's not the MP that you have called out to solve your issue, it goes further then that. So start with chain and file a complaint.:)

Cops can take fingerprints, but the problem is you have to figure out which ones of the thousands in a typical house belong to residents, guests, repairmen or suspects. Once you narrow down the prints, they either have to be compared to prints already on file or compared to a suspect you have already indentified. IF the burglar has never been arrested, his prints will not be on file (Military print files of soldiers who were printed for enlistment purposes are not normally accessed by the police for comparison purposes because of legal issues. those files are federaly sealed and can only be accessed by certain people under certain circumstances). It can take months, even up to a year, to get any results back from the fingerprint check. It is not like on tv, where they take a photo of the prints and get instant results. A murder or rape will get faster results, but a relatively minor burglary will be at the bottom of the priority pile at AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System). So although the MPs or CID should have taken prints, in the long run, it probably won't have made any difference. And not to speak about MPs specifically, but Cops in general, park near the door of a busniess or restaurant they are in, so they can get to their vehicles in a hurry in case of an Emergency. Plus some businesses encourage cops to park there because the visibilty of cops and their cars sometimes makes customers feel safer. I have heard of some cities that park empty police cars in the lots of businesses just to make it look like a cop may be inside, therefore scafing off any robbers or thieves.
