Abstract:

This study examines the implications that threats of terrorism have for current and future missions of the Army. It determined the future role of the military police in countering terrorist acts. It recommends revision required in the Armys law enforcement doctrine, structure, training, equipment and planning to counter acts of terrorism when they occur. The authors examine the question of whether the Army should adopt broad policy guidance or specified guidance to subordinate commands in dealing with acts of terrorism and make recommendations. They examine the Armys capability to thwart criminal terrorist efforts at sabotage, blackmail, or other disruptions on US Army installations worldwide. They conclude that appropriate countermeasures, including education and awareness training, should be implemented at installation level both in CONUS and OCONUS.
