PATRICK AFB, Fla. --  Our defenders in the 45th Security Forces Squadron kept our community safe during the fall festivities last night.  Every year, the Security Forces Squadron puts together a team of volunteers to police the housing areas to guarantee the safety our children during the end of the month's fall activities. 

This team is called Pumpkin Patrol. It is a Security Forces initiative that not only provides the neighborhood a sense of security, but it also gives Security Forces personnel a chance to reach out to the families in our base community.
