1-6 Crime Prevention Measures
Although this publication is oriented to protecting Marines and their family members from terrorists, measures discussed in the following lessons are generally applicable to protection from crime as well. As an American, you must be careful when travelling at home or abroad. Crime is a more common threat to most military personnel than terrorism, however, the threat of terrorism has a far greater impact on national security. You can narrow the chances of becoming a victim by increased awareness of potential problems and careful planning. Practicing sound individual protective measures makes you a “hard target.”
