MOFFETT FEDERAL AIRFIELD, Calif. --
Antiterrorism goals are simple: Keep every member safe and keep every resource secure. You can make a difference in meeting this mission by gaining a better understanding of Force Protection efforts and taking responsibility for wing security by incorporating AT techniques you've learned in Level 1 training.
Force Protection is a constant process involving many facets including intelligence collection and analysis, program planning, security assessments, mitigation, etc. It is complex and never ending and I need you to realize you play a part in the most crucial element: reporting and intelligence. So, when you spot something suspicious and report it to Security Forces you have done your part. The smallest piece of intelligence can make a huge impact. Remember, it is of utmost importance that we remain observant and aware of our surroundings at all times and to not become complaisant or passive in our day to day lives at work or elsewhere.
The best source of intelligence is an informed and trained Airman. So, please accept this challenge: keep your eyes open and report anything out of the ordinary to Security Forces at 603-9111 or local law enforcement when off base.
