Protecting the Force rests on the Pillars of Force Protection!


Antiterrorism Vigilance

Antiterrorism is the defense measure used to reduce the vulnerability of individuals, information, and facilities to terroristic acts. The threat of terrorists attacking our military communities is real. Terrorists can strike anytime and anywhere. The terrorist threat ranges from ideological influence, to recruitment, to kidnapping for ransom or political gain. Since 9/11, terrorist’s tactics and methods have increasingly targeted civilians in public places in an attempt to influence governments. 

Remember these few tips to help protect yourself and others from the threat of terrorism:
  •  Maintain situational awareness at all times. See Something Say Something.
  •  Basic security begins at home. Make sure your window and doors are locked.
  •  Participate or organize a neighborhood watch program.
  •  Think ahead and choose safe travel modes and routes when travelling abroad.
  •  Prior to travelling abroad, ensure you receive an AOR Threat brief from your ATPC.
  •  Report suspicious behavior or activities to the local law enforcement. 

Antiterrorism individual awareness training is available through the unit or installation Antiterrorism Officer or visit:

Report Suspicious Activity Immediately!
See Something. Say Something.
Because someone is depending on you!

Operations Security (OPSEC)

OPSEC is a process of identifying critical information and subsequently analyzing friendly actions attendant to military operations and other activities to:

Remember these few tips to help protect yourself and others from the threat of terrorism:
  •  Identify those actions that can be observed by adversary intelligence systems.
  •  Determine indicators that hostile intelligence systems might obtain that could be interpreted or pieced together to derive critical information in time to be useful to adversaries.
  •  Select and execute measures that eliminate or reduce to an acceptable level the vulnerabilities of friendly actions to adversary exploitation. 

Operations Security protects critical information from adversary observation and collection in ways that traditional security programs cannot.
