The Spot Report is a guide to assist with reporting threatening or potentially threatening activity that you or someone you know have observed. Designed as a tool to aid soldiers in reporting observed enemy activity, this can be adapted to report criminal activity, invading military forces, or forces of an oppressive regime. This is a combination of two reporting formats (SALUTE & 5W's). Fill everything out as soon and as accurately as possible.
