Department of The Army Physical Security Program

a. The Army Physical Security Program is a systematic approach to physical security to ensure adequate protection
of DA assets on installations, in stand-alone facilities, for civil works and like projects, and other locations occupied by DA elements.

b. The intent of the program is to counter threats to Army assets and capabilities during peacetime, contingencies,
mobilization, and wartime by addressing the spectrum of --

(1) Aggressors defined as unsophisticated criminals, sophisticated criminals, and organized criminal groups, vandals/activists and extremist protesters, domestic terrorists, international terrorists, state-sponsored terrorists, saboteurs and foreign intelligence agents.
(2) Aggressor tactics that may be used.
(3) Human threat tools, weapons, and explosives based on historical and current use.

c. Physical security plans, processes, and procedures will be synchronized with other security programs such as
antiterrorism, information security, and personnel security, and related efforts such as continuity of operations,
information assurance, and resource management.
Crime prevention
a. Crime prevention is a command responsibility. A successful program needs continuing command emphasis to
prevent criminal activity from detracting from mission accomplishment.

b. An effective crime prevention program serves to maximize the security of a military community in peace and
war. Its goals are similar to, and support those of the physical security and operations security programs (see AR
530 -1). The methods used to identify and analyze crime problems complement each other.

c. A crime prevention program reduces crime by --

(1) Stimulating appropriate crime prevention attitudes, procedures, and behavior through public awareness campaigns and programs.
(2) Protecting potential victims or property from criminal acts by anticipating crime possibilities and eliminating or
reducing opportunities for the acts to occur.

(3) Discouraging potential offenders from committing criminal acts.

d. The USACIDC provides support for crime prevention surveys.
Tenant Support
a. Conduct staff assistance visits of tenant units based on key control and arms room inspections.
b. Conduct risk analysis for each location considered a High Risk Target or vulnerable area of concern.
c. Conduct physical security inspections of all areas within the Fort Hamilton installation.
d. Identify installation restricted areas
