This request is a collaboration with Kim Nguyen.
The Family Advocacy Program (FAP) Child Abuse and Domestic Abuse Incident Reporting System is a Department of Defense database “designed to address prevention, identification, evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, follow-up, and reporting of child abuse and neglect, domestic abuse, and problematic sexual behavior in children and youth” in military communities. It contains information about each incident, victim, and alleged abuser.
Our FOIA request 📄 seeks:
Records from all tables and fields (except personally identifiable fields) in the database.
All records documenting this database system, including record layouts, database schemas, entity relationship diagrams, database diagrams, data dictionaries, glossaries, and user guides.
Although the Department of Defense publishes aggregate statistics from the database, the requested records would allow more thorough public analyses of abuse allegations and outcomes.
