Dedicated to the men and women of the USAF Security Forces/Security Police who were active members of the Emergency Service Teams; to those who were EST Field Supervisors and helped trained numerous teams that supported high risk operations on and off Air Force installations and in support of other agencies.
To that small group of instructors who put us through the paces and gave us the confidence to train other teams... "We Salute You!"

This is great to see that the teams are actively involved in training on installations and are out there competing with their civilian counterparts. Is it time to reconsider opening another EST school for Security Forces? Isn't there enough expertise within Security Forces to mount another school, surely it would keep our Security Forces on the cutting edge, not only on new technology, tactics and shooting skills, but also on survival tactics for police.
