Army Counterintelligence and DPTMS partner to host TARP-AT training briefs

Fort Huachuca Antiterrorism Office

Luis Martinez of All-Star, contractor for the Directorate of Public Works, installs this year’s Anti-Terrorism Awareness Month banner across Winrow Avenue at the Main Gate Monday. August is Anti-Terrorism Awareness Month and, during August, classes have been scheduled to heighten awareness. Anti-Terrorism Awareness Month precedes the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and helps everyone remember the threat is real. Effective anti-terrorism measures integrate multiple security programs such as policing, threat information sharing, physical and operations security to ensure the protection of installations, standalone facilities and operational forces.

For the first time, the 902nd Military Intelligence Detachment and the Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security will team up to host Threat Awareness and Reporting Program, TARP, and Antiterrorism training. The venue will be Cochise Theater, Aug. 14, with presentations at 8 and 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m.

These varied times are to accommodate as many schedules as possible to meet this annual training requirement. “We have reserved multiple times throughout the day, so we can fit into your schedule, not force you to fit into ours,” said Capt. Brandy Moralez, commander, 902nd Military Intelligence Detachment. “We will be discussing indicators of espionage, what foreign intelligence services look for when they target U.S. persons, insider threat indicators, what to do when you encounter a suspicious incident, what is reportable and how to report it.”

Instructors will also cover radicalization, how it happens and the dangers it poses. In what is expected to become an annual event, the DPTMS Antiterrorism Office will cover how these multiple threats have manifested themselves in the past, commonalities with today’s attack methods, indicators of surveillance, suspicious activity, and the danger of not reporting.

“What makes this really good for us at the AT Office is the timing coincides with the Army’s Antiterrorism Awareness Month [this month], making our teaming with the 902nd a perfect fit. This event is user-friendly, accommodating to personal schedules, and meets an annual requirement, making it a win-win situation for all,” said Jesse Markum, the installation antiterrorism officer.

If the video playing on the Commanders Access Channel {COX Channel 97] is any indication, this will not be normal power point fare. “The video is definitely tongue-in cheek,” said Moralez, smiling. “It was a lot of fun taking a different approach to advertise the training, especially training of this nature, with a touch of humor,” she added.

“There’s no rule saying this can’t be fun, even though it’s a serious subject,” said Markum. “We intend to educate and hopefully enlighten without being hard to listen to.”

According to Moralez, battalions are already requesting times to attend, and seats will fill quickly. If organizations still needing to meet the annual requirement cannot attend this training event, they can coordinate future training with Sgt. 1st Class Josh Corbin, 533. 2214 or Joshua.t.corbin.mil@mail.mil.
