The 610th Security Forces Squadron (610 SFS) is a United States Air Force Reserve unit located at the Naval Air Station JRB Fort Worth. The unit is unique as it does not serve a law enforcement purpose on the base, but instead focuses on combat readiness. The unit was originally designated AFRES Ground Combat Readiness Center and was re-designated 610 SFS in November 1995. The 610th SFS will officially shut its doors on 1 October 2015, due to the federal budget for FY 2016.
