DA Form 2823, Sworn Statement, is a U.S. Army-issued form used for documenting informal events or recording evidence during formal investigations. Evidence recorded on the DA 2823 is accepted by all non-military law enforcement agencies.
The form - sometimes confused with DD Form 2823, Command Authorization for Search and Seizure - was last revised by the Department of the Army (DA) on November 1, 2006. An up-to-date version of the DA Form 2823 is available for download down below or can be found on the Army Publishing Directorate (APD) website.
In case of a formal investigation, witnesses may use the form as long as they are assisted by an investigating officer or board. This is a crucial measure necessary to ensure that the witness doesn't put any unnecessary information into their written statement or forget any significant circumstances or facts.
Most informal investigations require an officer responsible for holding interviews and keeping track of evidence.
