311th Military Intelligence Battalion, 500th Military Intelligence Brigade
The Anchorage Resident Office, 311th Military Intelligence Battalion, 500th Military Intelligence Brigade, conducts counterintelligence investigations, operations, collection and analysis to detect, exploit and neutralize foreign intelligence entities, international terrorism and insider threats to U.S. Army forces, technologies, information and infrastructure throughout Alaska. On order, the Anchorage Resident Office provides tailored CI support to overseas contingency operations.
The ARO higher headquarters is the 500th MI Brigade, which provides direct and general counterintelligence (CI) support to Army activities and major commands in the INDOPACOM AOR. The Brigade also provides general support to other military department counterintelligence and intelligence elements, unified commands, defense agencies and national agency counterintelligence and security activities and organizations.
Army Regulation 381-12, Threat Awareness and Reporting Program (TARP), directs that:
  • All DA personnel will receive TARP training at least annually.
  • Live training is mandatory with few exceptions. |
  • Training will be conducted by qualified CI personnel, and commands not having organic CI assets will arrange for training to be conducted by supporting CI offices.
  • The Anchorage Resident Office will provide TARP training and Army Chief of Staff-directed Insider Threat indicators (ALARACT 322/2009) training to units, activities and individuals within its area of responsibility when scheduled adequately in advance. The unit is responsible for securing a location and computer and speakers with video projector for a PowerPoint presentation.
The Army Counterintelligence (CI) Program requires its members to be mature, intelligent and personable to carry out the broad range of CI functions to detect, identify, exploit and neutralize any Foreign Intelligence and Security Service (FISS), International Terrorist Organizations (ITO) and Insider Threats who are targeting U.S. forces, information and technologies.

A CI special agent has to be able to operate independently and be relied upon to make sound judgments in the absence of higher leadership or supervision. Special agents also have to interact with senior officials of both U.S. and host-nation (HN) military, civilian law enforcement, intelligence and security agencies.

This requires that personnel applying for the Army CI Program be among the most professional and competent Soldiers in the Army. The CI applicant process is extremely important in ensuring that the CI military occupational specialty remains capable, and that the most qualified and competent personnel are accepted into the Army CI Program. CI special agents will conduct all interviews and processing of Army CI Program applicants.
