Sir,
FORSCOM is working hard to ensure that all units with duty at detention facilities are trained in accordance with CFLCC intent expressed in your white paper ... USAMPS has produced the training support package that we will use in this effort ... but the tasks are somewhat different than are listed in the white paper ... understand from conversations with USAMPS that they feel these tasks when trained to standard meet your intent. Asking you for confirmation that this is the validated POI.
tasks in TSP:
introduction to detainee operations
communicate with detainees (muslim cultural awareness)
geneve conventions
stress management
hiv/universal precautions
use of force for detainee operations
restraint procedures
personal safety awareness
forced cell moves
respond to bomb threat and/or bomb within detention facility
emergency actiond for fire, escapre, and disorders within detention facility
cell block operations
accountability procedures
perform security and control activities
special housing unit/segregation activities
main gate /sally port operations
visitation procedures
unarmed self defense techniques added:
meal procedures
contraband control procedures
non-lethal weapons capabilities during disorders/disturbances
escort procedures
not included: individual/detainee frisk, undress, cell, and area search procedures
capabilities and limitations of the interrogation

1 000851 kt
support relationships between military police and military intelligence in detainee operations
humane treatment of detainees
international agreements and regulations relateing to detainees
integration of procedures for evacuation, control, and administration of detainees

Have not gotten any feedback from USAIC on the interrogation pieces of the training ... but see a seam developing in tasks that overlap MI and MP areas. Have attached the FORSCOM guidance on detainee operations that we released after chop from COL(Pt again based on the white paper mostly.
