Should I sign the document stating that the CID can open up a package they already know is coming? Military question / law

Military Law Question

Should I ever sign a document that gives permission to the Criminal Investigative Department to open up a package that might be involved in a criminal case? Even if they know the package is coming? Also, if someone were to tell the agents that a package was coming, should that same person go and pick up the package, or should they let the agents pick it up / handle it? I'm afraid that if this person under investigation goes and picks up the package (even if the CID is with the person) it's considered "possession" and it feels like a trap. Should this person just let the CID pick up the package?
