Colonel Donald V. Harlin Jr. (USMC Retired) (Executive Officer Field Operations)


Don has a varied background in the security and training fields. He was the senior security, risk management consultant to the Association of American Railroads (AAR) the past eight years. He has also worked with the Chemical Industry in performing vulnerability assessments and helping develop their own rail security plans. His track record of results and security improvements include: the development of the AAR Operations Center and the building of the national RAN – Railway Alert Network; the creation of the rail industry Training and Exercise Plan that defines its security training and exercise goals and objectives for the year; the enhanced Table Top Exercise program, and the exercise After Action Review and Improvement Plan, a process adopted by the Association and its members.  To enhance the security training experience he developed the exercise COFAC system – (controller/facilitator). Based on the exercise Master Scenario, individuals from each railroad are trained (IT and Operation) to assist in the creation of the specific detailed exercise scenario at the local level for each railroad. This enabled a simultaneous training exercise of the Class 1 railroads all across the nation that focused on the goals established in the Industry Training and Exercise Plan. This has been an overwhelming success in delivering challenging security training and more importantly in developing lessons learned for improvement.

Don has also developed (working directly with police chiefs and security leadership of the railroads) an Audit Matrix tool that has simplified for them a process to measure their compliance with security plan countermeasures’ and alert level actions. He continued to build more robust communication capability that included secure telephones, satellite communication links, and redundant COOP site capability for the AAR Operations Center located in Washington, DC. 

While in the Marine Corps, Don was the Commanding Officer and Assistant Chief of Staff for Security and Safety for the USMC Base at Camp Pendleton, CA. He has expertise in all areas of management at senior level, and has worked through natural disasters such as flooding and wildfires aboard the Base in his capacity as Assistant Chief of Staff for Safety and Security. In addition to daily security and safety issues he also worked through emergencies to assist with expediting evacuation and relocation of aircraft, people, and material from flood prone areas in high risk situations. His responsibilities included directing the efforts of the Fire, Police, Corrections, and Safety Departments. At the Pentagon he was a senior level staff officer with responsibility for working civilian and military law enforcement issues - collaborating with FBI, US Customs, US Border Patrol, USCG, DIA, CIA, and the Armed Services. He has expert knowledge of government and military requirements in counter narcotic law enforcement environments.
