7. What guidance or policies are there to ensure fraternization is not taking place between U.S military personnel and the detainees? (1.1, 1.2, 1.4,1.6, 4.1) AR .190-8, paragraph 3-6 a, The following acts will not be permitted: (1) Fraternization between EPW, RP and U.S.
military or civilian personnel. Fraternization is defined as improper or intimate communications or actions between U.S. Armed Forces personnel and EWP/RP.
8. What training have you and your subordinates received to ensure your knowledge of
DO is IAW the provisions under the Geneva Convention? (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 4.1) DoDD 2310.1
para 3-3.2 (The U.S. Military Services shall be given the necessary training to ensure they have

knowledge of their obligations under the Geneva Conventions (references (b) through (e)) and as
required by DoD enemy personnel is possible.) AR 190-8, paragraph 4(b-c) The inhumane treatment of
EPW, CI, RP is prohibited and is not justified by the stress of combat or with deep provocation. Inhumane
treatment is a serious and punishable violation under international law and the Uniform Code of Military
Justice (UCMJ). All prisoners will receive humane treatment without regard to race, nationality, religion,
political opinion, sex, or other criteria. The following acts are prohibited: murder, torture, corporal
punishment, mutilation, the taking of hostages, sensory deprivation, collective punishments, execution
without trial by proper authority, and all cruel and degrading treatment. All persons will be respected as
human beings. They will be protected against all acts of violence to include rape, forced prostitution,
assault and theft, insults, public curiosity, bodily injury, and reprisals of any kind. They will not be
subjected to medical or scientific experiments. This list is not exclusive. EPW/RP are to be protected from
all threats or acts of violence.)

9. Wkil at is the 01C/NCOICs'overall role in detainee operation process? What involvement do the 01C/NCOICs have in the interrogation process of detainee operations? Do the 01C/NCOICs provide a means to validate detainee's information? Do the 01C/NCOICs provide input as to the disposition of the detainee? (1.1, 1.2, 1.6, 4.1) (FM 34-52 page 2-12 Battalion S2 Controls Interrogation employed for temporary period at battalion
level receives PIR, IR, and SIR from the supported battalion S2. This will ensure interrogators are fully oriented to the battalion's collection mission. In other instances, interrogators may be placed at brigade in an "on call" status, from which they can proceed to any of the subordinate battalions as circumstances warrant. Upon completion of a low-level, immediate-type interrogation, they can return to brigade and again become available for immediate employment. Commanders and S2s below brigade level who are unable to obtain interrogation support from higher echelons should include provisions in unit and staff standing operating procedures (SOPs) for the "tactical questioning" (not interrogation) of EPWs or detainees. They should identify assigned personnel for language capability. Interrogation personnel should provide training in the area of tactical questioning to designated S2 personnel. The potential for abuse of the EPW is greatest at the initial capture and tactical ,questioning phase. With the excitement and stress of the battlefield, it may become easy for unskilled personnel to resort to illegal techniques to elicit critical information. Instruction must stress the importance of the proper treatment of EPWs. Emphasize that the abuse of an EPW at the initial stage of contact often renders future interrogation futile. If you are engaged in, or supervising the tactical questioning of EPWs, you are responsible for

10.Where are your screening sites located (where detainees are interrogated and screened)? Are these facilities adequate for your needs? Do you have enough interrogators for your operation needs? What are your personnel shortfalls?(/./, 1.2, 1.7, 1.8) Local SOPs (FM 34-52 Intelligence Interrogation, page 2-9 At brigade level, EPWs can be
detained in open fields, courtyards, gardens, jungle clearings, or similar sites if they are hidden from
enemy observation. If necessary, these areas can be enclosed with barbed wire far more efficient EPW
handling. Because EPWs seldom remain at a forward collecting point for more than a few hours, EPWs
are not usually kept in a building or other shelter. Interrogation facilities at battalion and brigade are kept to a minimum. 2-10 Compared to brigade facilities, division interrogator facilities are expanded. When
practicable, interrogations at division should be conducted in improvised interrogation rooms in buildings adjacent to the division collecting point. If possible, separate rooms should be available to permit several interrogations at once. 2-22) The EAC interrogation facility will normally be designated as the Theater Interrogation Facility (TIF). A TIF is staffed by US Army interrogators and analysts, with support from Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and other US national agencies as required. In a multinational operation, a combined interrogation facility (CIF) may be established with allied interrogation augmentation.)

11.What is the procedure on how to identify a deinee who may have intelligence information? Who performs this procedure? Are MPs involved in the decision-making? Are PIRs used as a basis for the identification of detainees of interest, personality lists used, etc? (1.1, 1.2, 2.1) (FM 34-52 Intelligence Interrogation, page 3-2) If time permits, screeners
should question holding area personnel about the EPWs and detainees. Since these personnel are in almost constant contact with the EPWs and detainees, their descriptions of specific ones can help identify sources who might answer the supported commander's PIR and IR. Screeners should identify and note those EPWs and detainees whose appearance and behavior indicate they are willing to cooperate immediately or are unlikely to cooperate ever, Unless time is critically short, screeners should—personally observe the EPWs and detainees. Pay attention to rank and branch of service insignias, and condition of uniform and equipment. Carefully observe the behavior demonstrated by other EPWs and detainees. Look for things like attempts to talk to the guards, intentional placement in the wrong segregation group, or any overt signs of nervousness, anxiety. Or fright. Note any EPWs and detainees whose appearance or behavior indicates willingness to talk.)

procure logistical support to include: transportation, subsistence, personal, organizational and NBC clothing and equipment items, mail collection and distribution, laundry, and bath for DO. (FM 3-19.40,
2986

para 7-101, Supply functions in a confinement facility are the same as those in other military units. However, stronger security measures are necessary to prevent certain supplies and equipment froin falling into the hands of prisoners.)
13.What control measures are you using to maintain discipline and security within the
interrogation facility? (1.1, 1.2, 4.1) AR 190-8, paragraph 3-6 (Measures needed to maintain
discipline and security will be established in each camp/collection point and rigidly enforced. The camp commander will maintain records of disciplinary punishments. These records will be open to inspection by the protecting power. The following acts will not be permitted; Fraternization betvveen EPW, RP and U.S. military or civilian personnel. Fraternization is defined as improper or intimate communications or actions between U.S. Armed Forces personnel and EPW/RP. Donating or receiving gifts or engaging in any . commercial activity between persons in U.S. custody and U.S. personnel. Setting up of courts by detainees.

14. How many people are authorized to be present in the room when interrogating/
screening a detainee? Under what circumstances are you required and authorized to
have more people? (1.7) (no standard)

15.Are the personal effects of a detainee released to the interrogator or is the interrogator allowed to examine the items? (DOCUMENT HANDLING) (1.1, 1.2) (FM 34-52 Intelligence Interrogation, page 4-4 The accountability phase begins at the time the document is captured.
Original documents must not be marked, altered, or defaced in any way. Documents must be clearly tagged. The capturing unit attaches a capture document tag (DA Form 5976, Part CNOTE: Different tag. AR 190-8, para 2-1a(b) says use a DD Form 2745 and (d) says Part C is attached to property confiscated from the detainee.) to each document; multiple CEDs are bundled or bagged together. The capture data is always recorded on a captured document tag. The capture document tag should be assigned a sequential number at the first formal exploitation point, showing the nationality of the capturing force by national letters prescribed in STANAG 1059. The capturing unit will record the information as follows: Time document was captured, recorded as a DTG. Place document was captured, including the six-or­eight-digit coordinate, and description of the location of capture. Identify of the capturing unit. Identity of the source from whom the document was taken, if applicable. Summary of the circumstances under
which the document was found. CED intelligence value will be determined and exploited as early as possible. The document muSt be forwarded immediately to higher headquarters. Custody of CEDs transfer (normally from the MP) to MI when MI identifies a document as having intelligence interest. When MI interest in an EPW-related CED stops, MI gives it back to the MP.)

16.Are you receiving sufficient information from the capture paperwork to properly
conduct screenings and interrogations? Are the current requirements for
documentation of a captured person sufficient or excessive? Did the changes in
procedures as far as documenting captured person improve your ability to gather
intelligence? (1.1, 1.2, 2.2, 4.1) ((Fm 3-19.40, paragraph 2-3, The commander is responsible for
the administrative processing of each internee. When processing is complete, he submits a DA Form
2674-R to the servicing internment/resettlement information center (IRIC), which function as the field
operations agency for the national IRIC located in CONUS. ) (AR 190-8, para 2-1, a. (1) (b) (c), All
equipment, documents, and personal property confiscation during the search must be tagged and
administratively accounted for by the capturing unit. DD Form 2745, Part C is attached to the property
confiscated from the Detainee, so that it may later be matched to that Detainee to include the CJTF
Directive on proper paperwork procedures)

If a captive or his equipment or documents are removed from the receiving/processing line, account for them on DD Form 2708 and DA Form 4137. 3-68. The site is located where screeners can observe captives as they are segregated and processed. It is shielded from the direct view of captives and is far enough away that captives cannot overhear screeners' conversations. The site has an operation, administrative, and interrogation area. The interrogation area accommodates, a captive, a guard, and an interpreter as well as furniture. Lights are available for night operations. Accountability procedures are implemented and required forms are available.)

c. The commander is responsible for establishing leadership climate of the unit and developing disciplined and cohesive units. This sets the parameters within which command will be exercised and, therefore, sets the tone for social and duty relationships within the command. (1) Commanders and other leaders committed to the professional Army ethic promote a positive environment. If leaders show loyalty to their soldiers, the Army, and the Nation, they earn the loyalty of their soldiers. If leaders consider their soldiers' needs and care for their well-being, and if they demonstrate genuine concern, these leaders build a positive command climate. (2) Duty is obedient and disciplined performance. Soldiers with a sense of duty accomplish tasks given them, seize opportunities for self-improvement, and accept responsibility from their superiors. Soldiers, leader and led alike, work together to accomplish the mission rather than
feed their self-interest. . .
