Mission statement[edit]

The United States Army Regional Correctional Facility-Europe provides level 1 pre-trial and post-trial correctional services, conducts prisoner transfers to Contiguous United States (CONUS) correctional facilities, and on order provides advisory teams in support of full spectrum operations.

Organization structure[edit]

The USARCF-E staff primarily consists of Army soldiers assigned to the 18th Military Police Brigade. These soldiers are joined by several members of the Air Force and the Navy who serve as the liaisons for their respective service personnel incarcerated within the facility and also assist in the daily operations of the facility. The staff is rounded out by both Department of Army civilians and local national employees.


With the ongoing realignment of US forces in Europe all facilities in Mannheim are to be closed no later than 31 August 2013 and the Army is currently preparing to move this facility to Sembach Kaserne.[1]
