Crime Prevention Surveys may be conducted on:

Bachelor Enlisted/Officer Quarters

Government facilities that maintain negotiable instruments (checks, cash, etc.)

Tenant organizations such as banks, credit unions, etc.

Facilities requested by unit commanders, at the discretion of the Provost Marshal
