Sources of Military Jurisdiction
United States Constitution: the specific provisions of the constitution relating to military jurisdiction are found in the powers of Congress, in the authority vested in the President, and in the provisions of the 5th Amendment.
Federal Statutes: Laws passed by Congress.
International laws: Customs, agreements between nations, international conventions and dcisions of national or international courts or tribunals (i.e., the Geneva Conventions, Status of Forces Agreements)
States who is subject to military jurisdiction
States the UCMJ applies in all places. Not only does the code apply in all cases, but also there are no restrictions on where a case may be heard. Where
- Articles 77-134 are the Punitive Articles
- Artile 134- General Article
Types of Military Jurisdiction
Exclusive: Only Federal laws- the United States codea pplies. The state has not authority over the base except to serve civil or criminal warrants and subpoenas resulting from acts occuring off base. Eglin Main Base, Poquito Bayou Housing, Camp Pinchot, and Field #4.
Concurrent: Local law enforcement authorities have the right to enforce laws on federal property, although the government also has jurisdiction (it is normal practice for local law enforcement authorities to enforce laws in these areas) When there is a conflict, the federal government prevails under the Supremacy Claus of the Constitution. State Hwy 123 from the airport to range road 628, state hwy 85 from val p city limits to the shalimar city limits, general bond cutoff, state hwy 189 from the west gate to general bond cutoff, both poquito road, and sunset road to the longwood subdivision.
Partial: Both the state and federal government have some legislative authority, but neither has exclusive power. For example, a state may have retained criminal jurisdiction over an installation or part of an installation (housing areas, for example). Again, in conflict, federal supremacy applies.
Proprietarial: The US has the same rights as any property owner. The US and its personnel on base are treated as tenants, subject to the state law (and federal laws that do not rely on territorial jurisdiction, such as espionage, bank robbery, tax fraud, counterfeiting, etc.) The federal governent still maintains sovereign immunity and supremacy for inherently governmental functions. Duke Field, Santa Rosa Island and all other areas of the Eglin reservation not included under exclusive or concurrent jurisdictions.
Involves military jurisdiction over the civilian population in time of emergency. There are two categories, qualified and absolute.
Qualified: The civilian government never relinquishes control of its functions. SF members only have the right to detain individuals, not apprehend.
Absolute: Involves the total replacement of civilian authority by military authority. SF members have authority to apprehend.
What gives SF the authority to apprehend
Rule 302(b)(1), Manual for Courts-Martial and Article 7b
The military equivalent of the civilian term "arrest". In the military, the term "arrest" is a moral restraint imposed by an individual's commander. Apprehension is the taking of a person into custody.
Custody is the restraint of a person's free movement, whether it be verbal or physical.
Apprehensions are made on...
probable cause, which means a reasonable belief that a person committed an offense. Facts and circustances must indicate a person committed an offense before an apprehension is justified. Facts and circumstances may be established by observation (witnessing the event) or by report (complaints or when ordered by authorized higher authority) You effect an apprehension by stating, "You are under apprehension," or "I am taking you into custody." Never leave doubt as to a suspect's status.
Section 1382, Title 18, United States Code, authorizes...
authroizes you to detain civilians for on-base offenses when such action is reasonable and necessary for the preservation of law and order. If a civilian is detained for an on base offense, he or she must be turned over to civil authorities as soon as possible.
Posse Comittatus Act
Prevents the use of any part of the federal armed forces to execute the laws of the state, or the United States, ecept when acting under the authority of the US Constitution, an act of Congress, or when directed by the President. Governs the use of military personnel only within the continental United States (CONUS)
Article 136(b)(6), UCMJ
Gives SF the authority to administer oaths to witnesses and suspects
Rights Advisement serves a three-fold purpose:
Always give the rights advicement warning prior to questioning, admissions or confessions. Observe the suspect while giving the warning and ask questions to be sure individual understand everything throughly. If a suspect is too intoxicated to understand or does not understand English well enough to understand his/her rights, any statement made by them will be inadmissible.
- protects the suspect's constitutional rights
- ensures any statement made is admissable in court
- protects SF personnel and the government against civil suits.
Use the AF Form 189, Advisements of Rights, or the AF Form 1168, Statement of Suspect/Witness/Complainant, to ensure rights are administered properly (don't try to memorize it). Remember that one side of the AF Form 189 is for military suspects and the other is for civilian suspects.
anything that may be admitted in court to prove or disprove facts in an issue.
Rules of evidence....(definition)
to be admissible in court, it must be handled according to rules established by law. Laws on rules of evidence are subject to change as court decisions are made.
Rules of evidence... evidence must be...
- burden of proof
- character evidence
- opinion testimony
- expert testimony
- hearsay rule
to be admissible, evidence must be relevant and competent. Relevancy requires that an item of evidence be of value to a courts-martial or trial. Competency is the reliability of worthiness of evidence. Competency applies to both physical evidence and witnesses.
Burden of proof
Rests with the prosecution. The prosecution has the responsbility to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant did in fact commit the offense in question.
Evidence of bad character of an accused individual is not allowed except if the accused first introduces evidence of good character
if the witness is not testifying as an expert, the testimony of the witness is the form of opinions or inference is limited to those opinions or inferences which are (a) rationally based on the perception of the witness and (b) helpful to a clear understanding of the testimony of the witness of the determination of a fact in issue, i.e. speed, distance, sobriety,etc..
Primary function of an expert witness is to assist the court in interpreting evidence relevant to a case in question
Primary reason for the hearsay rule is the right of both the prosecution and defense to cross examine opposing witnesses under oath at trial.
Types of Evidence:
tends directly to prove or disprove a fact in an issue. If witnesses say they saw person A shoot person B, the testimony would be direct evidence.
Tends indirectly to involve a person in an offense
Any physical object, such as clothing, jewelry, weapons, and marks or wounds on a person's body may be received or exhibited as evidence if they are relevant to an issue in a case.
Given orally, under oath, and in a court of law. Testimonial evidence may be either direct or circumstantial evidence. A witness giving testimonial evidence gives only their personal, first-hand knowledge of facts and circumstances about a case.
Anything in writing (such as confessions, admissions, official records, and business records)
When it comes to evidence..SF must do what?
- 1. Record information at the time the evidence was discovered (place, time, and witnesses present)
- 2. Place his/her initials along with the date and time on the evidence where it will not ruin or deface the property
- 3. Mark it with an AF FM 52, Evidence or Acquired Property Tag4. Store object in a clean, dry container and place his/her initials along with the date and time on container only
- 5. Chain of custody
- 6. Secured at all times
- 7. Should be turned in to a designated property custodian as soon as possible
- 8. Should be handled by the minimum amount of personnel in order to easily establish and maintain the chain of custody
Chain of custody
from the time that the evidence is found until the time it is admitted in court, there must be a complete accounting of everyone who handled it.
A federal law dealing with evidence. It requires you to save all field notes, rough drafts, and statements made by you, other SF, any witnesses or victims, or the suspect. Any statement made or adopted by a witness must be produced if the defense amkes a motion under the Jencks Act. A "statement" can include tape recordings and videotapes as well as written statements. If these cannot be saved, the witness may not testify. Destruction of the statement in good faith is not a defense for the prosecution. When investigating, always check, to see whether someone has already taken statements.
The 4th Amendment of the US Constitution states:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
Principal means used to restrain police conduct. The Exclusionary Rule provies that all evidence obtained by illegal searches and seizures is inadmissable in criminal trials.
Circumstances that would lead a reasonable person to believe a specific offense has occured, that a specific person committed the offense, and that the fruit or instruments of the offense are in a specific place. SF members will obtain the installation commander's (or appointed military magistrate's) permission to conduct a probably cause search (AF FM 1176, Authority to Search and Seize)
A search is an examination of a person, property, or premise to uncover evidence of a crime or criminal intent.
A seizure is the taking of items by authorities, for evidence at a Courts-Martial or other judicial proceedings
Search with Consent
SF members may conduct a search based on consent to search by an individual. If a person consents to a search of his or her property or person, prior search authority is not required. When consent to search is obtained, it must be freely and voluntarily given. The law does not require the advisement of Article 31 of Fifth Admendment rights to persons who voluntarily give permission for a search. Consent will be given orally (you must receive a "yes" or "no" as an answer) or in writing. Use AF FM 1364, Consent for Search and Seizure, to obtain written consent to search. If the person refuses the search and then changes their mind, follow the fule of thumb, "Once refused, always refused."
Exceptions to warrant requirements of the 4th Amendment:
If you make a warrantless search, you have to be able to "later" explain why. Two ways not to have a warrant:
- 1. Search Incident to Apprehension: A search may be conducted incident to an apprehension without obtaining search authority, and may include the immediate area over which the apprehended person exercises control.
- a. apprehension must be lawful or valid
- b. apprehension must precede the search
- c. apprehension must be together or as soon as possible
- d. search must be limited to the area under subject's immediate control.
- 2. Doctrine of Plain View: Instance in which police can search for and seize evidence without benefit of a warrant if it's in plain view. The following are some exceptions:
- a. When you have another person who may aid the subject then your area within a home may expand
- b. When the subject is allowed to go to another part of the house to get clothing, identification, etc., then you can precede the subject and search the route and place(s) that the subject is going.
Terry Stop (Terry vs. Ohio, 1968)
Supreme Court determined that police may briefly detain a person if they have a reasonable suspicion that the person has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime. Because of the important interest in protecting the safety of police officers, police may perform a quick surface search of the person's outer clothing for weapons if the yhave reasonable suspicion that the person stopped is armed. This reasonable suspicion must be based on "specific and articulable facts" and not merely upon an officer's hunch. This permitted police actins has subsequently been referred to in short as a "stop and frisk" or simply a "Terry stop". The Terry standard was later extended to temporary detentions of persons in vehicles, known as traffic stops.
Arming and Use of Force by Air Force Personnel
Air Force personnel engaged in force protection duties will use only that force which is ______
What sets the limits for the use of force by personnel engaged in effecting arrest or other seizures of persons?
the fourth amendment of the US Consitution
What court case established the fourth amendment standard of "objective reasonableness" as the appropriate standard for assessing the use of force in the context of making an arrest or other seizure of a person
Graham V. Connor, (1989)
The reasonableness of a particular use of force must be judged from the perspective of a reasonable officer on scene, rather than with the 20/20 hindsight ... the "reasonableness" inquiry... is an objective one..
The criteria supporting "objective reasonableness" is provided from three essential areas within the confrontational environment:
- a. the subject(s) action(s)
- b. the risk perception
- c. the officer response
Circumstances to use deadly force:
- 1. When you reasonably believe yourself or others to be in imminent danger of death or serious bodily harm.
- 2. Protection of DoD assets designated as vital to national security. DoD designates its assets as "vital to the national security" only when their loss, damanage, or compromise would seriously jeopardize the fulfillment of a national defense mission. This includes protection level 1, 2, or 3 assets as defined in AFI 31-101, Air Force Physical Security Program, and other assets specifically designated by the installation commander.
- 3. Protection of DoD assets not involving the national security but inherently dangerous to others. (weapons, ammo, missiles, etc.)
- 4. To prevent serious violent offense that could result in death or serious bodily harm.
- 5. When it reasonably appears necessary to detain, apprehend, or prevent the escape of a person suspected of committing an offense of the nature specified in above paragraphs.
- 6. Competent authority may specifically authorize the use of deadly force when it reasonably appears necessary to prevent the escape of a prisoner who threatens serious bodily harm or death to escorting personnel or other persons. During an escape attempt, you must have probably cause to believe the prisoner is attempting to escape and the escaping prisoner poses a threat of serious bodily harm to yourself or others.
USAF Weapons Loading Procedures
Special Rules of Engagement for the Protection of USAF Protection Level 1, 2, or 3 resources
- a. When faced with a hostile attempt to penetrate a restricted area boundary or to gain access to a protection level 1-3 resource and you encounter no hostile weapon fire, you must challenge, detain, and identify all intruders or suspected intruders.
- b. If compliant on the use of force model and the challenge is obeyed, turn over the suspects to SF
- c. If resistant on the use of force model, the challenge is not obeyed and the intruders or suspected intruders penetrate a resticted area boundary or are inside a restricted area and do not endanger a protection level 1, 2, or 3 resource, use compliance techniques to isolate the intruders and physically apprehend them You must base the level of force you employ on your perception of risk to the assets.
- d. When faced witha hostile attempt to penetrate a resticted area boundary, to gain access to a pl 1-3, or to steal, damage, or destroy such areas orresources, and hostile weapons fire is involved, or weapons are displayed, you may use deadly force if necessary to stop the hostile act.
- e. When faced with a hostile attempt to seize a nuclear asset, you must take all possible actions, including the use of deadly force, to stop such an act. If hostages are involved, their safety and welfare must not leter you from taking prompt, decisive, and effective action, including the use of deadly force, to preventthe unauthorized access to, removal of, or recovery of a nuclear weapon.
handcuffing is ____ automatic
Considerations for handcuffing:
- 1. nature of the offense
- 2. demeanor/violence potential of the suspect (cooperative, hostile, combative, frightened)
- 3. number of suspects
- 4. need for control
- 5. your perception of the threat to your own safety and that of innocent third parties.
made prior to the actual search. The precautionary check will consist of verbal commuication with the suspect. Ask the suspect if he/she has any sharp objects on their person. Regardless of the suspect's reply, proceed with caution to determine the location of any objects. SF members are in a hgih-risk environment to health hazards such as: exposure to HIV, hepatitis virus, or other blood-borne pathogens, resulting from a "stick" or cut.
Primary Means of Communication (Intrabase radio)
- 1. Base stations
- 2. Base Station Remotes
- 3. Mobile Two-Way Radio
- 4. Portable Radios
a fixed, two-way radio located at the SFCC, used to send and receive calls
Base Statin Remotes
connected to the base station by telephone lines and use the base station to send and receive calls, installed on fixed posts
Mobile Two-Way Radio
installed in SF vehicles, enables patrols to talk with the base station and other posts/patrols when approved by the SFCC
small, hand-held radios used to talk over a short distance
First Back-up to the Primary (Landlines/Telephones)
- 1. Operational Type Telephone Service (4-digit lines)
- 2. Direct Line Telephone Service (Hot Lines)
Secondary Back-up to the Primary (manual signal techniques)
- 1. hand and arm signals
- 2. flashlights
- 3. flares
- 4. smoke
- 5. whistle
- 6. weapons (as a last resort)
A positive duress is the activation of a manual duress alarm system or using a duress word.
duress code 100a
duress cod 101
20 SPCS Space Operations Center
duress code 102
Eglin Command Post
duress code 104 (E,W,A,H,N)
Gates (East, West, ACC, Hospital, North)
duress code 105 (call sign)
failing to follow established procedures, miss-authentificating, failing to report or reporting late for communication checks, failing to answer a radio transmission after three tries or telephone after ten rings, using an unathorized radio call sign, or any other action that is out of the ordinary may be taken as a form of passive duress. When a passive duress is indicated, the SFCC will dispatch a patrol to determine the person's security status.
Response to Duress Indications
When given a duress indication, responding units will be dispatched in a manner that will not alert or compromise the post/patrol under duress. Response units will make every effort to make their arrival look as normal as possible and take direct action based upon the situation at the scene. UPon arrival, notify the SFCC of the situation and on arrival of backup immediately place all personnel in teh group at a disadvantage. Separate theperson indicating duress from the group to a neutral area.
Two up-channel reports:
- Helping hand
- Covered Wagon
An unclassified telephonic message relayed to the installation command post informing them that an unusual incident, possibly hostile and affecting protection level resources has been detected. Incidents are reported to the SFCC by any means available by anyone who witnesses or discovers the problem. The installation command post shouldn't immediately relay the information to higher headquarters. The SF immediately investigates the situation. EXCEPTION: If you believe a hostile event occured involving a protection level resource, immediately up-channel COVERED WAGON reports.
When no hostile event occured, the SFCC must request the authority to terminate the HELPING HAND through the Eglin Command Post.
Initially a COVERED WAGON report is an unclassified up-channel telephone report (designator immediate or flash) sent up the same communication channel and in the same format as a HELPING HAND report. COVERED WAGON reports inform higher-level headquarters than an unusual incident affecting priority resources, probably or actually hostile occured at an installation or dispersed site. The installation commander or designee may cancel the COVERED WAGON.
Down Channel Report
Threat Condition Alerting Message (TCAM)
Threat Condition Alerting Message (TCAM)
A down-channel alerting order that sets in motion an increase in readiness posture generated from higher headquarters, which is a result of evaluating COVERED WAGON reports on current intelligence information that may cause an increased state of readiness at a variety of levels. It may affect only one or two installations or installations Air Force wide. Upon receipt of a FORCE PROTECTION CONDITION (FPCON) alerting message, the SFCC will implement the appropriate FPCON as directed.
Applies when a general threat of possible terrorist activity exists, but warrants only a routine security posture.
Applies when there is an increased general threat of possible terrorist activity against personnel or facilities, the nature and extent of which are unpredictable, and circumstances do not justify full implementation of FPCON BRAVO measures. However, it may be necessary to implement certain measures from higher FPCONs measures resulting from intelligence received or as a deterrent.
Applies when an increased and more predictable threat of terrorist activity exists. The measure in this FPCON must be capable of being maintained for weeks without causing undo hardship, affecting operational capability, or aggravating relations with local authorities.
This condition applies when an incident occurs or intelligence is received indicating some form of terrorist action or targeting against personnel or facilities is likely. Implementation of this measure for more than a short period will probably create hardship and affect the activities of the unit and its personnel.
Applies in the immediate area where a terrorist attack has occurred or when intelligence has been received that terrorist action against a specific location or person is imminent. Normally, this FPCON is declared as a localized condition. FPCON DELTA measures are not intended to be sustained for substantial periods.
What starts a recall?
usually the result of receipt of a TCAM
Upon notification of a recall, an individual will immediately notify the next person in the pyramid. If contact cannot be made...
continue on until contact is made with the next available person.
Primary meeting point for a recall is:
SF Squadron, Building 272
Alternate meeting place for a recall is
SF Mobility, Building 883
When recalled, do not shower, eat, shave, etc., and you must have the following items with you:
- Restricted Area Badge (in serviceable condition)
- Government Driver's license
- Weapons cards (for all weapons currently certified on)
- flashlight (in working condition)
- foul weather gear
- all issued web gear
- flak vest
- helmet (with cover)
- gas mask
Recall type Alpha
Nothing more than a notification of telephone standby. Initiated to preapare the force for immediate response in anticipation of a mission or a Bravo recall. This recall requires each person to notify their supervisor when they will be out of contact. If a pager or cell phone is assigned this will satisfy the "in contact" requirement
Recall type Bravo
Initiated to support personnel only. Requires all support personnel to report immediately to their place of duty. As with any recall that requires an immediate response, a sense of emergency is required, therefore, showers, shaves, breakfast, and other non-essentials are not a priority.
Recall type Charlie
Full squadron recall. Normally initiated through the command post via telephone message to the SFCC. The SFCC in turn notifies the appropriate personnel to implement the pyramid recall.
Recall type Delta
Initiated when a recall is necessary but there is a total or partial communication outage. Alternate sources include runners, patrols, PA systems and other police agencies. The runner system will be implemented.
Routine; When a call is not given a priority it is assumed routine. Respond by observing all applicable traffic laws. Never use emergency lights or sirens for any routine call. If you become aware of circumstances unknown to the dispatching agency, you may upgrade to response to Code 2 or Code 3. The responsibility for upgrading the call in the fashion rests solely with the responding patrol.
Urgent; A call requiring an immediate response to a non life-threatening emergency will normally be assigned an urgent priority. Respond by observing all applicable traffic laws, except the posted speed limit, which may be exceeded in a safe and reasonable manner. Use emergency lights for all urgent calls. Sirens are not authorized. The urgent call is also known as the silent response. Check local, state, territorial, or host nation traffic codes for limitations on use of lights and sirens (some traffic codes do not support code 2 responses)
Emergency; A call requiring an immediate response to a life-threatening emergency or in response to an emergency involving Air Force protection level resources is normally assigned an emergency priority. The use of emergency lights and siren is mandatory; however, use common sense when approaching the scene of the emergency. IF THE EMERGENCY LGIHTS AND SIREN PUT SF MEMBERS, VICTIMS, OR BYSTANDERS IN PERIL, TURN THEM OFF A SAFE DISTANCE FROM THE SCENE.
Request for Wants and Warrants; Use this code to obtain outstanding wants and warrant check on a specific person or vehicle. Immediately follow this transmission by listing: the complete name and social security number of the person (if known) or complete vehicle description and license plate number of the vehicle to be checked. code 4 is also used by the control station in response to a request from the patrol number for a wants and warrants check, alerting the SF member that the person is wanted for a major offense. When a person is wanted for a major offense, a backup is dispatched, Code 2.
The purpose for a restricted area badge is:
serves as an official document issued to a person who has been granted unescorted entry authority into restricted areas.
Five different types of Restricted Area Badges

Two different types of entry control
- exchange badge system
- single badge system
Exchange badge system
This type is used when stringent means of entry are needed. It requires the use of two restricted area badges, one basic badge and an exchange badge maintained at a restricted area entry control point.
Single Badge System
This entry is utilized at Eglin AFB and involves only one restricted area badge. When an individual requests entry into a restricted area,this technicque is used by comparing the person's physical features displayed on the badge to the individual. This type of entry is relatively easy to defeat; therefore, whenever the single badge procedures are used to control entry, one of the following supporting techniques for identification and verification will be used:
- personal recognition
- signature and credential check
- master entry authorization listing check
- entry authority lists
- telephone or radio confirmation
Who responds to a bomb threat
- On-Scene Commander
- SF personnel
- Fire Department Personnel
What to do in a bomb threat situation:
- establish and secure a 500 foot cordon
- evacuate nonessential personnel
When do you expand to a 1000 foot cordon?
When a suspected explosive device is discovered.

- -If he leaves full flaps down after landing or lowers full flaps while on ground
- -transmits "Aircraft call sign- flaps are full down"
