PETERSONAIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- During May, the 21st Security Forces Squadron, along with facility parking wardens, issued 58 traffic citations. Citations included registration and driver license offenses, operating a vehicle while using a cellular telephone, and failing to stop or yield. Drivers were suspended for various offenses including unlawfully using a cell phone and careless driving.

Tip of the Month - 21 SFS has towed several vehicles over the last couple months. Vehicles may be towed and impounded for a variety of reasons to include interfering with ongoing operations or movement of traffic, posing a threat to public safety or convenience, or being abandoned. 21 SFS ensures compliance with storage procedures; however, towing and impound fees are paid by the registered owner of the vehicle.

Calls for Service - Security Forces responded to about 227 calls for service during May, including:
- 31 human error alarm activations
- 15 medical responses.
- 9 motor vehicle accidents

Tip of the Month - Security Forces tend to see an increase in child neglect during these warmer months ahead. Warmer weather is a great reason to get outside; however, keep an eye on your children and adhere to the Child and Youth Supervision Guidelines established by the 21st Space Wing commander. Please refer to the Youth Center or Family Advocacy for more information.

Off-Base Incidents - Security Forces received notification of some off-base arrests or incidents involving military members or government property. These included two incidents of domestic violence and distribution of controlled substances.

Security Forces also conducted about 364 community policing patrols such as walk-throughs of dormitories, the fitness center, etc.
