History
The 50th SFS was constituted as the 50th Air Police Squadron and activated at Clovis AFB, New Mexico with other units of the 50th 
Fighter-Bomber Wing on Jan. 1, 1953. A component of the 50th Air Base (later Mission Support) Group, the 50th left Clovis with the 
wing in July 1953, arriving at Hahn Air Base, Germany in August.  For the next 38 years, the squadron provided security and law 
enforcement to Hahn AB and other sites in the region.  The squadron re-designated 50th Security Police Squadron on May 1, 1967 and 
on Oct. 21, 1988 was reassigned to the newly established 50th Security Police Group. The squadron inactivated with the 50th Tactical 
Fighter Wing on Sept. 30, 1991 and activated at Falcon AFB, Colorado on Jan. 30, 1992, replacing the 1002nd SPS.  In response to world 
events, the security police career field transitioned into the new Security Forces career field on July 1, 1997. It included combining the 
security and law enforcement career fields and absorbing the combat arms training and maintenance career field into one Air Force specialty.
