Pentagon Police Vigilant Day and Night

As the country celebrates Osama bin Laden’s demise, Pentagon police officers are remaining ever-vigilant in their mission of protecting Department of Defense workers.

The Pentagon Force Protection Agency protects DoD workers at the Pentagon and at other leased and owned installations in the Washington area. An article published today by the American Forces Press Service details the work of the PFPA officers who work the night shift at the Pentagon.

The article discusses how officers monitor the various sensors and cameras around the 280-acre Pentagon reservation. Among the sensors present inside and outside the complex are sensors that monitor for potential chemical, biological and radiological threat.

The article also mentions that the PFPA monitors Federal Aviation Administration communications “so we can listen to aircraft that are coming our way.”

The ability to monitor incoming aircraft communications did not exist before the Sept. 11 terror attacks, the article says.
