About Schriever AFB

Breaking ground in 1983, Falcon Air Station was selected as the site for a Department of Defense space control facility and renamed Schriever Air Force Base in 1998. Home of the 50th Space Wing, Schriever AFB is located approximately 12 miles east of Colorado Springs, Colorado, the state’s second largest city. Encompassing nearly 4,000 acres in El Paso County, Schriever AFB is located off of Colorado State Highway 94 and is roughly 10 miles from Peterson Air Force Base. Schriever AFB supports a population of more than 8,000 active duty, dependent, and civilian personnel.

Facilities within the boundaries of Schriever AFB are somewhat limited. Peterson AFB, located 9 miles away, provides support for shopping, lodging, dining and entertainment. On base, Schriever AFB has a fitness center and limited dining facilities. Peterson AFB provides shopping, lodging, dining and entertainment, including a bowling alley, additional fitness/aquatics centers and a golf course. Outdoor recreation opportunities can be found at the Farish Recreation Area (FRA), a 650-acre site located west of the USAF Academy, approximately 45 miles from Schriever AFB.  The Farish Recreation Area offers hiking, mountain biking, fishing and camping opportunities. Various daytrips are organized by Schriever AFB and Peterson AFB to take advantage of Colorado’s skiing, hunting, fishing, rock/ice climbing and whitewater rafting opportunities. However, the majority of the installations are dedicated to mission support and training.

Home of the 50th Space Wing, Schriever AFB is unique for having no aircraft mission. Schriever AFB is instead tasked with maintaining space and cyberspace superiority. The 50th Space Wing is responsible for the operations and support of nearly 200 Department of Defense Satellites. Schriever AFB is home to several key operations, including the Missile Defense Agency’s Integration and Operations Center, tasked with Ballistic Missile Defense and the co-located Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense (JFCC IMD). JFCC IMD synchronizes missile defense planning, conducts ballistic missile defense operations, and advocates for missile defense capabilities in support against ballistic missile attacks.

What to Do After an Arrest at Schriever AFB

If you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of a controlled substance, sexual assault, theft, or any other crime at Schriever AFB there are a number of steps you need to take immediately. Following an arrest, you should:

  • Exercise Your Article 31 Rights - The Right to Remain Silent. Once you have been arrested, you have the right to remain silent, and it is important that you do so. Air Force OSI or Military Police will likely use a number of different tactics to try to get you to admit guilt, but you do not have to (and should not) say anything that could be used against you until you speak with an attorney.
  • Exercise Your Right to Legal Representation. The one thing that you should say is that you want to talk to a lawyer. You have the right to legal representation, and having an attorney present during your interrogation will help ensure that you do not say anything or make any other mistakes that could jeopardize your defense.
  • Avoid Speaking with Anyone About Your Case. In addition to exercising your right to remain silent with the Air Force OSI or Military Police, you should also avoid speaking with anyone else about your case. Cellmates, friends, and even family members could become witnesses for the government, and it is imperative that you avoid giving prosecutors access – directly or indirectly – to anything that could be used against you.
