Abstract:

The Air National Guard has military installations located across 54 states and territories--from Alaska to the Virgin Islands and from Maine to Guam. Occupying these installations are aerospace weapon systems and resources which are tasked by the Department of Defense for both peacetime and wartime missions. The day-today security of these installations is provided by a variety of security forces ranging from military security police to contracted security guards. The training of these contract security guards varies between installations and between states. This research considers whether or not a training program should be standardized for all Air National Guard contract security personnel. The results of this research suggest that the Air National Guard should prescribe a required standard of entry level training for all contract security guards. Furthermore, the research suggests that a security Code of Ethics should be prepared for all Air National Guard security force personnel.
