Mission Statement

The Marine Corps Absentee Collection Center is comprised of two Marine Corps Absentee Collection Units, MCACU Washington D.C. and MCACU San Diego, CA and the 24/7 Deserter Information Point.

The MCACC performs functions that will affect the apprehension and detention of deserters and their return to military control, as well as the transport of Marine Corps prisoners. Apprehensions will be performed by civilian law enforcement agencies. At the request of civilian authorities and upon approval of the OIC, MCACU escorts may be in the vicinity of the apprehension to facilitate an immediate custody transfer of the apprehended deserter.
