Introduction In many of the Ports that the U.S. Navy visits, terrorism is active and a real part of the society Constant vigilance and seriousness needs to be maintained in order to effectively combat these threats
How Terrorists Identify and Select Targets Location: locations frequented by Americans Association: American tourists Personnel associated with the U.S. military Opportunity: Terrorists look for “soft targets”
Anticipate Always ask yourself these questions: Are there any terrorist groups in my area? Are they violent? Do they attack Americans? How active are they? How sophisticated are they? How do they operate-are they predictable? Will the local population warn Americans? What tactics, weapons, and types of attacks do they use?
Normal Terrorist Profile The face of terrorism is difficult to determine, as there is no longer any specified profile that can be easily identifiable.
Don’t be a target Overcome routines Vary routes and times to and from work Exercise on different routes/times and don't exercise alone Vary times/places for shopping, lunch, and other appointments Enter/exit buildings through different doors Don't divulge family/personal info to strangers Be prepared for unexpected events
Don’t be a target (continued) Maintain a low profile Dress/behave in public consistent with local customs. Avoid wearing western attire, clothing with U.S. flags, logos, etc. No U.S. related stickers, decals, logos on luggage, briefcases, shopping bags, etc. Unless necessary, don't wear uniform or military items in public Shun publicity Show respect for local customs Don't flash large sums of money, expensive jewelry, or luxury items
Detecting Surveillance Make sure that no one is following you Vary your routines and routes Remain vigilant Look for things that are out of place and there for long periods of time Timely detection is the main way to thwart terrorist plots
