  • 50th Security Forces Squadron restructures to increase readiness, morale

    SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – The 50th Security Forces Squadron modified work schedules in an effort to increase connection, morale and project a position of strength for installation defense. Security Forces guidance was updated by the Air Force Security Force Center with an emphasis on the long-term negative effects of the 12-hour shift on the human body as it relates to performance for Airmen. Air Force leadership took interest in changing to eight-hour hour shifts to balance other mission requirements. Staff Sgt. Kelley Branch, 50th SFS operations staff noncommissioned officer, said in order to see this through, the 50th SFS leadership team mandated and implemented a schedule called the Alaskan Flex Schedule, limiting defenders of 12 hour shifts. The Alaskan Flex schedule reduces defenders’ schedules by four hours a day during most of the work week enabling Airmen to get more rest, focus on education, family and other personal affairs.
