o Ensuring all restrooms on floors where command offices are located (and all restrooms in a
multistory office building) are locked after duty hours to eliminate public access.
o Ensuring doors to janitorial and other maintenance closets are kept locked at all times.
o Ensuring doors to telephone and electrical equipment rooms are kept locked. Access is given
to maintenance and telephone personnel only when they have need for such access.
o Considering selection of an interior saferoom to be used if terrorists attack. It should not be
identified to the public as a saferoom.
o Maintaining emergency supplies, such as first-aid equipment, bomb blankets, food rations,
candles, lanterns, and other equipment considered necessary. Make sure key personnel know
where the supplies are kept and the locations of emergency exits and escape routes.
o Restricting the release of personal data on key personnel. This is used by terrorists to select
victims or identify their homes and families.
o Recommending that key personnel parking areas not be identified as such. Parking spaces can
be identified by number rather than by name or title.
o Limiting information on travel itineraries and arrangements for command or key personnel to as
few people as possible. Code names and assumed names may be required under special
circumstances. Consider making itineraries "for official use only" (FOUO), and number them.
This provides accountability and responsibility.
o Increasing the effectiveness of protective measures for command and key personnel by
encouraging them to--
- maintain a low profile.
- learn to recognize signs that they may be under surveillance. Being constantly aware of
their environment can be their most effective prevention tool.
o Use simple verbal code signals to alert family or organization members to a physical threat.
o Conduct crime prevention surveys of on-post activities to reduce the likelihood and opportunity
for crimes to occur.
o Protect very important persons (VIPs) and high risk personnel (HRPs). Provide personnel
security to high risk people through personal security missions and protective services details.
