  HITRON Tactical Procedures


Concept of Operations


HITRON Jacksonville's Concept of Operations is to forward deploy armed helicopters to high threat drug trafficking and high risk security areas.  In support of our counter narcotics mission, armed helicopters will intercept suspect targets, use appropriate force to interdict vessels, and vector Over the Horizon Cutter Boats (OTH-CB) and cutters to the scene for apprehension.  In support of Homeland Security, our assets will provide Airborne Use of Force resources in all directed security patrols.  When not deployed, HITRON Jacksonville personnel will train to provide the single CG source of forward deployed armed aircrews and helicopters.
