Security Augmentation Force

“The guard force and SAF will be trained by MCIPAC-MCBB Provost Marshal’s Office. The Camp Commander, Camps Foster, Lester, and Plaza Family Housing is the SAF Commander for Camp Foster. MCIPAC-MCBB will establish, train, manage and employ a Guard Force and SAF to provide security and protection of personnel and critical infrastructure to mitigate hazards, threats, incidents or responses beyond organic Provost Marshal’s Office (PMO) capabilities.


When hazards, threats or incidents require security personnel above the host-command's PMO/MCPD baseline capabilities, installation commanders may use the SAF to offset shortages. The SAF is primarily used to augment PMO/MCPD during heightened Force Protection Conditions (FPCON). However, this force may be tasked to conduct other security related operations as directed by the installation commander or his/her appointed security representative.”
