PA Services

Peterson-Schriever Garrison Public Affairs
The Peterson-Schriever Garrison Public Affairs staff is responsible for providing P-S GAR leadership with timely and effective public affairs guidance on unit and public issues. We develop communications strategies to build public trust and support through open and honest dialogue, to highlight the P-S GAR, Peterson Space Force Base, Schriever SFB, Cheyenne Mountain Space Force Station and the Air Force as a community partner and responsible steward of resources.

We also help Airmen, Guardians and staff members understand their role in the overall mission, to provide avenues for feedback and recognize individual and team achievements.

Media Engagement 
Peterson-Schriever Garrison is a non-public news gathering forum and requires all civilian media to have entry authorization and an escort prior to entering the base. Unless otherwise arranged, all media accessing Peterson SFB will enter the installation via the Main (West) Gate located on Stewart Ave and meet at the visitor center. Media accessing Schriever SFB will enter the installation via the Main (North) Gate located on Enoch Road and meet at the visitor center unless otherwise arranged.

Media interested in covering P-S GAR activities should call (719) 556-5185 or email P-SGAR.PA.P-SGARPAPAFB-SAFB@us.af.mil to arrange for an escort and for detailed information regarding upcoming media opportunities. the office has a 24-hour on-call PA representative who can be reached through the Colorado Springs Regional Command Post at (719) 556-4555.

Isolated Personnel Report

The PA office is only funded and equipped to print official studio portraits that are to be used for official government purposes. No other printing services are available.

Prints cannot be provided as souvenirs, personal gifts, mementos, farewell gifts, used as d├ęcor on individual personal office walls or used as signage to advertise events. 

Submit official support requests through QuickBase at least 10 duty days in advance. Advance notice provides PA the ability to ensure the necessary equipment and personnel are available. Failure to coordinate in advance will reduce the likelihood that the event can receive PA support. 

Hi-resolution digital imagery will be made available within one to five duty days for download from the P-S GAR Flickr page. Newsworthy or those events with high public interest will be posted to website, social media accounts or the base paper. Imagery will also be accessioned for historical archiving and is available on the Defense Video Imagery Distribution System website.

Each request for service will be reviewed to ensure that the request to be accomplished is legal, is for official purposes, and whether or not the request can be supported. Requests will not be accomplished if it violates Air Force policy, or it may infringe on copyright laws. It is everyone's responsibility to protect PA resources and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse. The wing commander has ultimate authority to approve any work in question to be accomplished. <AFI 35-109>

Self-help photo and video equipment is for official use only and can be signed out from the PA office 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday - Friday. All images entering the public domain must be reviewed and cleared for release by the Public Affairs office.
