Team Pete keeps base safe and secure


PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – The Department of Defense has announced expanded Commissary, Exchange, Morale, Welfare and Recreation, and physical base access for eligible veterans and primary family caregivers beginning Jan. 1, 2020.

With the increased amount of vehicle traffic and personnel that Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado is expected to witness, Airmen and their families are asked to report any suspicious activity to the Peterson AFB and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, Colorado Law Enforcement Desk.

Suspicious activity can be considered any observed behavior that could indicate crime. Example indicators include:

  • Unusual items or situations: Vehicles parked in odd locations, unattended packages or luggages left unattended, open windows or doors that are usually closed, or other out-of-the-ordinary situations.
  • Eliciting information: Persons questioning individuals at a level beyond curiosity about a building’s purpose, operations, security procedures, and/or personnel, shift changes, etc.
  • Observation/surveillance: Someone pays unusual attention to facilities or buildings beyond a casual or professional interest, including extended loitering without explanation (particularly in concealed locations); unusual, repeated and/or prolonged observation of a building (e.g., with binoculars, video or photo camera); taking notes or measurements; counting paces; sketching floor plans, etc.

Public safety and security is everyone’s responsibility. If you see suspicious activity, report it to the Peterson LE Desk at 719-556-4000 or CMAFS LE Desk at 719-474-3311 or a person of authority using the 5W’s—WHO did you see, WHAT did you see, WHEN you saw it, WHERE it occurred and WHY it’s suspicious. If there is an emergency, dial 911.
