The security forces career field is responsible for all police activities associated with an Air Force base. You could be doing anything from securing the perimeter of the base to being a dog handler. Your responsibility will be to ensure the safety of all base weapons, property and personnel from hostile forces. Security forces personnel learn lifesaving procedures; provide armed response; direct vehicle and pedestrian traffic on base; operate speed measuring, drug, alcohol and breath test devices; and conduct investigations. You will be involved in team patrol movements, tactical drills, battle procedures and military operations other than war. You might also be apprehending and detaining suspects, securing crime scenes or testifying in judicial proceedings. Security forces personnel also utilize military working dog teams, train handlers and all aspects of working dogs. Additionally, you might be assigned to an armory and be responsible for controlling and safeguarding arms, ammunition and equipment.
Security Forces is in fact an extremely important job. They are the only line of defense between the air force base an the enemy. Now Security forces is branching out and doing even more work such as protecting convoys and even going on off base patrols.
Anyone who says that Security Forces is not an important job is either a civilian or got a DUI from a Cop.
Jackass Civilian- LOL USAF security forces is for bitches, be a man and join the marines
Cop- punches civilian in the face
A job in the USAF. Security forces is the official name for the career field, but other affectionate names include cops, pigs, huas, or any obsenity you can think of. They are called huas because they answer any question with hua. They are shit on by the entire air force. Other branches think they are pussys automatically because they are air force. The job itself usually entitles sitting around for long periods of time fighting to stay awake. There are the occasional retards who take extreme pride in these pathetic tasks. These faggots are called "high speed". If you are a woman in security forces you can get out of the suck by one of a few ways. One get knocked up, or two suck some serious dick. Either will land you a cushy back office job. Traits of SF members are heavy drinking and suicidal gestures. If you go in the air force open general you will most likely get SF as your job. You could get spared and be a burger flipper though.
IgnorantCollegeTool-"What were you in the Air Force? A pilot?"
Me-"No dick wad, I was in USAF Security Forces."
Security forces are employed in many differant security roles throughout the world including the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of combat. SF members are equipped with inapplicable combat training and a sense of false purpose. Domestically and abroad, SF members can be found checking ID's at military base entry points, or staring at planes all day waiting for a security incident that never takes place. In the most basic terms, SF members are simply Federal Security Guards, with nothing more than a fauxe Army Combat Uniform to distinguish them from the run of the mill "Mall Cop". SF members are hated by the rest of the Air Force and not accepted by other military branches making them the most useless individuals in the military. As if that is not enough, SF members are known to treat eachother like crap and set eachother up for failure, ("Eat their own,...as the military describes it). There are a handful of SF units within the Air Force that actually contribute to the war fighting capability of the US. The individuals are an exception to the rule and should be respected for the hard work and sacrifices they make for a "thankless" job. If you are lucky enough to be one of these individuals, disregard this entry and understand this discription may apply to a majority of SF troops but is not an accurate description of everyone within the career field...hua!
