Candidate Sites Identified for Security Forces Training Consolidation

The candidate bases to host a security forces regional training center as part of the Air Force’s consolidation of its security forces training are: Camp Guernsey, Wyo.; Fort Bliss, Tex.; JB McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.; and JB San Antonio, Tex., announced service officials. Air Force Security Forces Center headquarters officials will now begin a detailed evaluation of the candidate sites. They will then brief the results of their study to the Air Force leadership for the selection of the preferred alternative, which could be one location or more. Announcement of the preferred alternative is anticipated by mid 2012. The Air Force is consolidating its current regional centers into fewer locations in order to conduct the security forces training more efficiently, be more responsive to combatant commanders, and increase the security forces airmen’s ability to adapt quickly to emerging enemy tactics, techniques, and procedures.
