AFOSI 3rd Field Investigations Squadron

The AFOSI 3rd FIS is located at the JBSA-Chapman Training Annex. 

It is a specialized unit with a diverse mission portfolio. As the largest AFOSI squadron, it delivers specialized investigative activities, strategic surveillance, cyber threat pursuit, insider threat information, and expert analysis to support global Air Force and DOD interests. 

Due to its proximity to several AFOSI units in JBSA, 3rd FIS routinely supports complex and high visibility investigations that impact all JBSA installations. Forensics science consultants advise on and participate in crime scene processing of all types, to include sex assaults, suicides and homicides, and child abuse matters. 

Digital forensics consultants exploit all types of media, recovering and extracting vital electronic information, very often recovering evidence of criminal activity used to find the truth in an investigation.  Polygraph examiners identify and neutralize potential insider threats. Technical Services Operations Special Agents create techniques, solutions, and improvised devices to support complex JBSA investigations. 

The 3rd FIS is closely partnered with Sixteenth Air Force (Air Forces Cyber) and conducts cyber threat pursuit activities vital to the national interest.
