activities in proximity to the international borders of the United States are
identified and communicated to the Secretary of Defense for the purposes of

(DoD). Reference (b) directs the military departments to take into account
the needs of civilian law enforcement officials for information, to the
maximum extent practicable, in the planning and execution of military
training or operations in accordance with reference (c).

network (HSIN) to facilitate the dissemination of law enforcement information
needs to the Armed Forces and to ensure that the information relevant to law
enforcement that is collected by the Armed Forces during the normal course of
military training is provided to relevant officials. It is expected that the
LMT portal will be web accessible and common access card (CAC) enabled.
DHS is expected to begin to build LMT accounts for the services by July 31,

schedule of events, area of operations, or missions to support LMT.
