Dyess has issued the following statement regarding base security:
"Due to operational security concerns, we cannot disclose detailed information regarding the installation's defensive measures or force protection procedures.
However, we can confirm that base access is monitored and controlled at all times, as both a crime prevention and anti-terrorism measure, in order to protect the installation and its assets, particularly our most important resource, our people.
In addition, Dyess personnel do perform training and exercises to ensure our Airmen, employees, and their families are better prepared to respond to an active shooter situation."
