The Security Department (N2) includes contingent of Naval Security Force (NSF) members. These individuals are the primary providers of physical security, law enforcement, and traffic control for all 600 acres of the base, 24 hours-a-day. The Security Department is augmented by the Auxiliary Security Force (ASF) personnel who are used during situations when increased security manpower is required, such as on-base special events and when threat conditions warrant. These "ready reserves" are trained by our own security personnel in hand-to-hand combat, tactical procedures, law enforcement, communications, weapons qualifications and the use of Deadly Force.
Security Department personnel conduct the command's Urinalysis program and coordinate Navy Working Dog visits as detection and deterrents to illegal drug use, fully supporting the Navy's "ZERO TOLERANCE" to drugs. Additionally, our security personnel provide all five Pendleton County Elementary schools with Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) 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.
