“The Security Forces Museum is “not closing” and was not programmed to be closed. It is in the process of being consolidated with the Airman Heritage Museum which will result in a reduction in its hours of operation. It remains open for training and by appointment only until expanded hours of operation can be achieved. Efforts are underway to develop a new home to house and properly display the heritage of our defenders and to tell the story of the rich history that our foundation is built on. Please contact Mr. Robert Crawford, AETC Curator, at 671-8200 or 652-6564 or Mr. Fernando Cortez, Airman Heritage Museum Curator, at 671-3055 for more information or to arrange a tour.”
The United States Security Police Museum (renamed the USAF Security Forces Museum in 2007) was established on November 5, 1979 to honor all Active Duty, Reserve, and Retired Air Force Security Police personnel to preserve the history and heritage of the career field.It is located on Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas and is supported by the Security Forces Museum Foundation.
This museum is the only one in the world that tells the Security Police historiography. The Museum’s Archival Repository contains historical documents, photographs, films, videos, audio tapes, magazines, newspapers and military memorabilia.
Airmen and their families are welcome to come and visit the “home” of the Army Air Corps Military Police, USAF Air Police, Security Police and modern day Security Forces and discover their history and heritage.
