| Staff Reporters
Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. – The 96th Security Forces Squadron will begin 100 percent identification checks for anyone accessing the installation in May.
EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. — Tracy McDaniel, Department of the Air Force Security Forces civilian guard, checks a base commuter’s ID before waving him on. The newly hired Department of the Air Force Security Forces guards received new uniforms similar to the LAPD uniform as part of an Air Force-wide initiative. This initiative requires gate guards to have advanced training with weapons, rigorous evaluations of mental and physical fitness as well as at least one year of law enforcement experience.
