It’s critical that Air Force buildings and structures are not only maintained, but remain combat ready. Responsible for coming up with and implementing solutions to complex problems, Civil Engineers keep our facilities and utilities running effectively. From drafting, surveying and planning to explosive ordnance disposal and disaster preparedness, these highly trained engineers provide necessary problem skills and a wide range of expertise to thousands of structures around the world.
The ultimate objective of every Air Force operation is security—for our Airmen, our bases and our country. Utilizing their broad expertise encompassing weapons systems, antiterrorism, law enforcement, air base defense, industrial security and combat arm, Security Forces Officers ensure we achieve this objective. Directing air base defense functions, these professionals control and secure the terrain inside and adjacent to military installations as well as the personnel, equipment and resources within to continue keeping us safe.
