Malmstrom AFB Community
341st Security Forces Group
The mission of the 341st Security Forces Group is to support the largest intercontinental ballistic missile complex in the world through effective management of all warfighting and peacetime security taskings assigned to the 341st Missile Wing.
The 341st Security Forces Squadron provides law enforcement services to the main base complex, ensuring Team Malmstrom remains a safe and law-abiding community for a base population of about 7,000 (per the latest economic impact for 2017). It provides entry control, base mobile patrols, security for resources in the weapons storage area, and military working dog teams that provide explosive and narcotic detection. The squadron operates the pass and registration office and visitor’s center, as well as runs Montana’s first enhanced 911 Center, which streamlines community 911 needs. It also operates a confinement facility supporting four Air Force bases.
The 341st, 741st and 841st Missile Security Forces Squadron organize, train and equip combat-ready personnel to secure approximately 133 ICBMs, throughout a 13,800-square-mile missile complex. In addition to securing the world’s most powerful weapon 24/7, year round, the three tactical squadrons are also responsible for ensuring the safety and security of maintenance teams deployed to the missile complex, ensuring the ground-based prong of the nuclear triad is always ready to launch.
The 341st Security Forces Support Squadron provides more than 1,200 security forces personnel with training, equipment and support to foster the most advanced warfighting and combat-ready force in Air Force Global Strike Command. It ensures forces are given the tools by training wing personnel in weapons qualifications and keys and codes for missile complex operations. It also trains, equips and mobilizes all 341st Security Forces Group personnel in support of all Air Force domestic and aerospace expeditionary force missions. The 341st SSPTS also provides an on-call force known as the tactical response force, capable of responding to any hostile attack within the 13,800-square-mile missile complex or the confines of Malmstrom. Finally, through their convoy response force section, they provide the highest degree of force protection for ICBMs during on- and off-base movements.
