and Community Based agencies throughout Florida. Our supply reduction efforts
have resulted in the seizure of billions of dollars in narcotics and assets. Our
reduction efforts resulted in prevention education of over 100,000 youth annually,
and our training efforts result in the training of thousands of personnel annually.

Civil Operations Overview
The FLNG-CDP Civil Operations Program (COP) will provide coalition support and
development to anti-drug coalitions throughout all 67 Florida Counties by using
unique military skill-sets and culture to assist community organizations in creating
a safe and healthy environment for our citizens.
The COP will provide coalition support in the way of development, strategic
planning, In-Kind Support, youth and adult leadership training, and approved drug
education activities.
Through embedded partnership with our community based organizations Florida’s
COP will assist local leaders in developing and resourcing initiatives designed to
reduce drug use in the community through education and interdiction facilitation.

Drug Demand Reduction Programs
Night Vision: A flexible information dissemination program aimed at, “Enabling
Florida’s Youth to clearly see the dangers of Alcohol, Tobacco, & Other Drugs. This
award winning program is presented by uniformed Soldiers and Airmen as well as
trained students.
Youth Leader: A dynamic Youth Program based on the Army Values of Loyalty,
Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. Soldiers
and Airmen conduct this training in flexible course lengths. The primary target of
the Youth Leader program is Middle School students but it can easily be modified
for elementary and high schools. The program goal is to provide our youth with
the values and confidence to make strong life decisions.
Youth Camps: DDR supports Youth Camps conducted by various Community
Based Organizations. Support for these camps includes facilitation of the various
DDR programs listed above as well as personnel and logistics support.

The Kaizen!!!
Community Systems Group and the National Guard Counterdrug Program have
collaborated to develop a Kaizen event that is free of charge for coalitions nationwide.
The term “Kaizen” is taken from the Japanese management approach to continuous
process improvement. It is hoped that coalitions will regularly assess their current
strengths and weaknesses and identify opportunities to improve. By repeating this
cycle, coalitions can measure their improvement in capacity over time.
This program develops a report that outlines your strengths and weaknesses.
Excellent tool for defining success.

Reconnaissance
Ground Reconnaissance Team (GRT): Surface and Subsurface
The Ground Reconnaissance Team based at Camp Blanding, Florida, is
comprised of highly trained personnel, forming two operational teams with a
support team element. Specializing in rural and urban reconnaissance and
observation, the GRT utilizes video and digital photography, remote camera
systems, day and night observation devices, and secure communications in
order to obtain documentation of suspected illicit drug activity for our law
enforcement requestors.
While primarily ground reconnaissance, the GRT also specializes in
counterdrug underwater dive operations to combat the smuggling of illegal
drugs attached to the hulls of ships arriving at Florida’s ports.

Reconnaissance
Aerial Reconnaissance Team (ART):
The ART is a counter-narcotics and homeland security aviation unit based out
of Cecil Field in Jacksonville Florida. The unit, formerly known as the RAID
(Reconnaissance and Interdiction Detachment) has been in existence since
the early 1990s. Initially their primary mission was marijuana eradication and
night-time Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) observation of suspected narcotics
activity.
Over the years the ART has grown to meet ever increasing demands from our
counter-narcotics missions, as well as demands involving homeland security
and natural disaster missions. Maintaining proficiency in these various mission
sets has helped us build and maintain good working relationships with the
Department of Homeland Security through Customs and Border Protection
and the U.S. Coast Guard. The ART maintains a year-round mission support
request with both of these agencies.
