Armed patrols

Well, as the title says, where can i find the rules on armed patrolling ?.
ie, when, what numbers of guard, how long etc.

I have had a look through landso 1108 and JSP440 (my eyes now hurt), but cannot find what i need. Probably went over it a dozen times and not even noticed it.

So, if anyone can point me in the right direction i would be eternally grateful :D
There is a formula which our QM used to calculate the guard composition.

Minimum of 8 anyway
1 pers per 500 sq M when armed with pick helve. Armed with weapon = 1 pers per 1000m sq
Night vision and weapon = 1 pers per 2000m sq

Other factors are to be considered
Threat level
Proximity to civ buidings/public highway

I would speak to your QM as he would be the man in the know

local MI det should advise. there are strict guidance for ARTD unnits and guards
Would getting sent off on a bimble around camp on your own with a loaded weapon be against those regs by any chance? :?
It is in JSP 440, do a search for live armed guard or LAG. Theres also the Live Armed Guard review doc which references it.

Do a search on DefenceNet.
