Antiterrorism is defensive measures used to reduce the vulnerability of individuals and property to terrorist acts, to include rapid containment by local military and civilian forces.
You and your fellow Army community members can report behaviors and activities that make you feel uncomfortable and do not feel right (suspicious behaviors).
Why Report These Behaviors?
It is your awareness reported to local law enforcement that can help predict and prevent attacks before they happen.
Since 9-11, we can and must work together to prevent future attacks.
It is always better to report suspicious behaviors than to refrain from doing so.
The iWatch Army program is about behaviors and activities, not individuals.
What activities do I report?
Here are examples of behaviors and activities to report:
- People drawing or measuring important buildings.
