The 9th Security Forces Squadron is tasked with securing the base’s perimeter and while this is a routine tasking for a security forces squadron, Beale’s perimeter presents unique challenges the 9th SFS must overcome. Beale’s vast 26-mile perimeter, rocky terrain, and wooded area riddled with various obstacles makes base security challenging. However, the 9th SFS conducts coyote patrols to meet these challenges.
