Department of the Army ATP 3-39.33 — Civil Disturbance


ATP 3-39.33 provides discussion and techniques about civil disturbances and crowd control operations that occur in the continental United States (CONUS) and outside the continental United States (OCONUS). United States (U.S.) forces deploy in support of unified action, overseas contingency operations, and humanitarian assistance worldwide. During these operations, U.S. forces are often faced with unruly and violent crowds who have the intent of disrupting peace and the ability of U.S. forces to maintain peace. Worldwide instability coupled with U.S. military participation in unified-action, peacekeeping, and related operations require that U.S. forces have access to the most current doctrine and techniques that are necessary to quell riots and restore public order.

 The principal audience for ATP 3-39.33 is Army commanders and staff elements at all echelons who are tasked with planning and directing civil disturbance missions. 

Commanders, staffs, and subordinates ensure that their decisions and actions comply with applicable U.S., international, and host nation (HN) laws and regulations. Commanders must ensure that Soldiers operate according to the law of war and the rules of engagement (ROE) (see FM 27-10). Unless stated otherwise, masculine nouns or pronouns do not refer exclusively to men.…

ATP 3-39.33 applies to Active Army, Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, and U.S. Army Reserve unless otherwise stated.

The proponent of ATP 3-39.33 is the U.S. Army Military Police School (USAMPS). The preparing agency is the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence (MSCoE) Capabilities Development and Integration Directorate; Concepts, Organizations, and Doctrine Development Division; Doctrine Branch.
