All structures offering observation of the boarding area should be properly secured either by closing off
when not used, or by placement of a security detail. When a large crowd is expected for takeoff
ceremonies, barricades and large forces of uniformed MPs and/or civilian police should be included in
the planning. The place designated for the protected person should be kept under constant guard
when not in use. All unauthorized persons should be kept away from contact with the plane.
When the destination is another installation, advance arrangements should be made with the local
provost marshal for additional security and transportation as needed. Sufficient transportation is
normally scheduled for the protected person and his party. Remember, however, that arrangements
must also be made for accompanying security personnel.
14. Travel by Small Watercraft. When planning for a cruise, the boats selected should be of a type
and size capable of withstanding weather and surf conditions that may be encountered. A thorough
inspection of the boat designated for the protected person should be made with responsible ship
personnel. The inspection is primarily for unauthorized persons stowing away and for any suspicious
objects or packages. An additional check should be made for adequate lifesaving and emergency
facilities. Security personnel should be alert for other craft approaching the protected person's boat.
Arrangements should be made for boats to precede and follow the protected boat.
15. Protection While Walking. One of the best protective measures is varying the selection of walking
times and routes. The protection team accompanying the protected person should be positioned to
cover all avenues of access.
Extra security personnel should be available in the area. A security vehicle should cruise nearby.
Local police agencies can be of special value in adding background security in these instances.
16. Protection at Public Assemblies. A careful search and inspection of the area should be made at
the time protection is set up. A protective cordon should be set up tight around the protected person.
Additional cordons should be added to the greatest possible extent. Protection in the cordon is
provided by protective personnel, permanent or temporary type barricades, and a combination of the
two. Screening points should be in place to admit passage of authorized persons and materials.
Observant and inconspicuous security personnel should patrol among the crowd. Maximum use should
be made of security aids such as floodlights and spotlights, communications, emergency equipment,
special weapons, locks, barricaded areas, and bullet resistant equipment and materials.
17. Protection While in a Residence. There are three cordons of security surrounding the principal-
inner, middle, and outer. The protective team occupies the inner cordon, other members of the detail
occupy the middle and outer cordons with support from local MP and civil law enforcement agencies.
There must be a pass system for the staff and frequent visitors. Food suppliers should be checked.
Food selection and handling should be
