Nonlethal Techniques, Ethics Key to Successful Border Operations - Classes Show Substitute for Trigger Time: Hand to Hand

Iraqi border police practice detainee search techniques, Oct. 20, 2008, while 1st Lt. Andrew R. Scheuer, adviser, Border Transition Team 4222 keeps a watchful eye. Scheuer, 26, Westlake, Ohio, and other Marine advisers spent Oct. 20, 2008, teaching desert wolves not to bite. The "Desert Wolves," 2nd Iraqi Border Police Battalion, 5 Brigade, 2nd Division attended nonlethal measures and detainee ethics and handling courses. Lectures covered correct physical and ethical treatment of suspected law breakers. At the end of the lectures, instructors posed hypothetical situations to students, opened the floor for suggested courses of action, and critiqued each course of action. Advisers also demonstrated proper detainee handling techniques, and then tested each student's comprehension of those techniques. Marine Corps Martial Arts capped the classes with some basic self-defense techniques.

Smugglers don't waste time when they cross from Syria into Iraq. Marines identified the problem, and a group of Iraqi policemen answered the call. An elite platoon of Iraqis began training to be the border's first Quick Reaction Force, Oct. 22, 2008. The main activity the QRF will respond to is illegal drug and arms smuggling. The QRF will also be a provisional infantry force for any immediate insurgent threat along the border towns and neighborhoods, to include improvised explosive device attacks and small arms skirmishes. Classes start with basics. Hand-to-hand combat and detainee ethics provide another less harmful option than the trigger finger. Marines don't ignore the possibility of deadly engagements, so the QRF's marksmanship and weapons familiarization improve with exercises from the Corps? Combat Marksmanship Program. The CMP is a short-distance marksmanship exercise that incorporates firing on the move, target acquisition and accurate round placement. The course is more for the officers' personal protection, and Marines always reinforce proper escalation of force procedures.

  • 1st Lt. Andrew R. Scheuer, an adviser with Border Transition Team 4222, hands a "BFIT" award certificate to an Iraqi police platoon sergeant on Oct. 22, 2008. Scheuer, 26, a native of Westlake, Ohio and other Marines from BTT 4222 conduct a Border Fort Inventory Tracker inspection on Iraqi police fort along the Syrian border once a month. Based on the inspection, they attach a percentage readiness grade to five logistical categories: weapons, vehicles, generators, communications equipment and quality of life. "[The BFIT] helps Iraqis to understand the accountability of what is used. If you have a log book and you have monthly inventories, it helps solve reporting discrepancies, and it helps paint a picture of what's going on to the higher echelons of command," said 1st Lt. Justin E. Houck, logistics adviser, Border Transition Team 4222. Commanders are more likely to act if they see an actual list, or, with pictures, they see the actual state of food deliveries, said Houck, 26, Ingram, Texas. Including Iraqis on regular inspections shows them what they should be looking for, and the proper procedure of reporting discrepancies up the chain of command, he said.
