Departments

Executive Department

TPU's Executive Department primarily encompasses Administrative, Legal, Command Career Counseling, and Training Divisions.  They are responsible for the daily operations of TPU’s Front Office, staff and occasionally transient support.  Administratively, they supervise and direct all administrative matters for the command and ensure accuracy and timeliness of all awards, TAD orders, Command tickler, FITREPS/EVALUATIONS, and Command correspondence.  As a department, they provide services for over 3,800 officer and enlisted transients annually processing in and out of the Navy, as well as over 100 staff members. 

Legal Division

TPU's Legal Department annually processes thousands of military justice matters such as Non-judicial Punishments, Summary and Special Courts-martial, Article 32 Investigations, and Administrative Separations and Boards for fleet and overseas units. The Legal Department tracks all post-trial matters for Navy region Southwest for service members who were sentenced to punitive discharges by sending out monthly tracer messages to parent commands reminding them to complete their Convening Authority Actions. After this action is completed, the members can be placed in the appropriate appellate leave status. Additionally, upon a member returning to military control via apprehension or surrender, the Legal Department prepares a message informing NACIC and the parent command so that the member can either be processed for administrative separation or returned to the parent command for disciplinary action.
