BREMERTON, Wash. – Naval Base Kitsap (NBK) held successful training exercises in Sinclair Inlet between Bremerton and Port Orchard on Friday, March 27.

“Friday’s exercise gave our security personnel the opportunity to hone their skills in a more realistic training environment,” according to Capt. Tom Zwolfer, Commanding Officer, Naval Base Kitsap.  “We appreciate the community’s support while we were conducting the exercise.”

Residents around Sinclair Inlet Friday morning may have heard simulated gunfire that was used to amplify the real-world training experience.  This type of training will continue to be a staple in honing the tactical skills of NBK’s security forces.

NBK’s Naval Security Forces are comprised of active duty masters at arms, Department of Navy police officers, and contracted security forces.  This diverse security force is maintained at a maximum state of readiness through a robust training and drill program.  A variety of training scenarios are used in numerous locations to ensure security forces are reacting quickly and effectively to potential threats.
