A day after the bombings in Boston, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has not raised its security threat level, according to base spokesman Daryl Mayer.
Thousands of vehicles travel on and off the base every weekday at Ohio’s largest single site employer. A 2011 population tally showed more than 29,000 military and civilian personnel assigned to the base.
“We continue to do enhanced security protocols on a random basis, some that are visible to the public and some that are not visible to the public, and that’s part of the normal enhanced security state that we’re in,” he said Tuesday.
He declined to say what measures those were. Both military and Air Force civilian police act as sentries at each of the base’s eight gateways, Mayer said.
