However, a considerable number of noncombatants and displaced civilians were being brought to the DCCP, creating yet another challenge.
Key tasks included supporting breach and berm-crossing operations, establishing forward collection points (FCPs) along the battlespace, establishing multiple DCCPs, conducting route signing for the march north, and performing convoy security operations.
Establish local security to protect the persons operating the DCCP, the occupants, and friendly troops adjacent to it or passing by.
When the search is over, the driver and the searchers together move the vehicle or livestock cart to the vehicle hold area in accordance with the model DCCP layout (Figure 3).
If a female searcher is not at the DCCP but is close enough to get there in a reasonable time, defer these searches until she arrives; set the people aside until then so that they are not a potential danger to others.
