About Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling

Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling was created when Naval Support Facility Anacostia merged with Bolling Air Force Base. Home to several ceremonial units, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB) is located in the Southeast quadrant of Washington, D.C. Encompassing approximately 1,000 acres in Washington, D.C., Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling is located off of I-295, on the Potomac River. Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling supports a population of approximately 17,000 active duty and civilian personnel, and their families.

Facilities within the boundaries of JBAB include shopping, lodging, dining and entertainment, including a bowling alley, fitness and aquatics centers. Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling also has a marina located on the Potomac River and its location allows for plentiful off-base recreation. However, the majority of the installation is dedicated to mission support and training.

Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling is home to the USAF Honor Guard, the USAF Band and the Navy Ceremonial Guard and also supports “Marine One” presidential transportation operations. Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling is host to various federal agencies, including the White House Communications Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Headquarters. As part of the intelligence community, DIA is comprised of some 16,000 employees in total, a mixture of DoD civilians and military members, who are tasked with providing intelligence to worldwide combat and non-combat military missions.

What to Do After an Arrest at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling

If you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of a controlled substance, sexual assault, theft, or any other crime at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling there are a number of steps you need to take immediately. Following an arrest, you should:

  • Exercise Your Article 31 Rights – The Right to Remain Silent. Once you have been arrested, you have the right to remain silent, and it is important that you do so. CID or Military Police will likely use a number of different tactics to try to get you to admit guilt, but you do not have to (and should not) say anything that could be used against you until you speak with an attorney.
  • Exercise Your Right to Legal Representation. The one thing that you should say is that you want to talk to a lawyer. You have the right to legal representation, and having an attorney present during your interrogation will help ensure that you do not say anything or make any other mistakes that could jeopardize your defense.
  • Avoid Speaking with Anyone About Your Case. In addition to exercising your right to remain silent with the CID or Military Police, you should also avoid speaking with anyone else about your case. Cellmates, friends, and even family members could become witnesses for the government, and it is imperative that you avoid giving prosecutors access – directly or indirectly – to anything that could be used against you.
