Detachment for Cause ("DFC") is the administrative removal of a member from a current duty for unsatisfactory performance of duty or misconduct before member’s normal transfer or planned rotation date. DFC is one of the strongest administrative measures used and should only be sought when all other efforts (i.e., training, counseling, guidance, treatment, reassignment within the command, etc.) are exhausted.
Unsatisfactory performance over an extended period of time must be properly documented (e.g., LOIs). All allegations must be adequately supported by appropriate inquiry and documentation.
When you are notified of Detachment for Cause, you are entitled to reasonable time (usually fifteen days) to write and submit a written response. Your written response becomes a part of the official record, so it is important that you submit a professional, respectful, and persuasive response.
