Abstract:

Basic problems in guard force effectiveness could be solved by training, but only within a basically revised guard force doctrine. Present approaches are weakened by circumstances which include the tactical vulnerability of a fixed procedure approach. Modern control systems could enable development of procedures that enforce activity and attention, and that vary the guard routine unpredictably. Simulation of incidents could ensure the perception of a credible daily threat. Reaction forces could be trained for a flexible response, and made effective by engagement simulation exercises.
