Security and Emergency Services Community of Interest

As one of the 20 Communities of Interest (COIs) initiated by General Jones, the Security and Emergency Services (S/ES) community provides members with training opportunities and forums to discuss issues, share best practices and promote common interests. The S/ES COI is led by a senior civilian appointed by the CMC and a manager appointed by the COI leader. Each occupational series has at least one member assigned as a collateral duty representative.  Members of the S/ES COI develop, coordinate, integrate and oversee force protection policies, and sponsor selected critical programs to provide secure environments. These activities enable the operating forces and supporting establishments to successfully execute Marine Corps global missions. Members of this COI also include first responders to fires, public safety and medical emergencies, disasters and terrorist acts. Additionally, they ensure Marine Corps installations are secure by investigating crimes and coordinating with intelligence services across the Federal Government to prevent espionage and terrorism. The following occupational series are part of the S/ES COI:

  • 0006 – Correctional Administration
  • 0080 – Security Administration (CBRNE, Information/Personnel, AT, Physical Security)
  • 0081 – Fire Protection & Prevention
  • 0083 – Police
