The Security Department (N2) is comprised of a strong team of Navy MA’s and DoN Police Officers working together to form the Naval Security Force (NSF). These individuals are the primary providers of physical security, law enforcement, and traffic control for the installation, 24 hours-a-day. The Security Department is augmented by the Auxiliary Security Force (ASF) personnel.

Security Department personnel volunteer for important programs in the surrounding community. Such activities include the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program in all Pendleton County elementary schools. This active interface program has strengthened the relationship between our command and the community in addition to teaching drug resistance and the dangers of mind-altering drugs.

As the base is co-located with a national forest, our security personnel have taken an active role assisting the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources. In this capacity, they provide Hunter Safety training, game tagging and verification services and assist with wildlife conservation programs.

The Security Department has a Range Safety Officer (RSO) who ensures NSF and ASF personnel maintain weapons proficiency. Additionally, the RSO and volunteer security personnel hold weapons qualification sessions whereby military members of the command can earn a medal or ribbon based on their pistol and rifle shooting ability.

To further extend the Command's partnership with the surrounding community, our security personnel administer the Ident-A-Kid program to help families in the event a child is lost or abducted, and they assist the National Weather Service by providing a daily submission of the data collected from the monitoring station located near the Security building.
