Offutt Air Force Base reopened the STRATCOM gate on Capehart Road at 11:15 this morning. It was temporarily closed after a military working dog detected a possible threat during a routine vehicle inspection.
Emergency response agencies from Offutt Air Force Base and the Douglas County explosive ordinance disposal unit responded and confirmed there was no threat to the installation.
Offutt officials released a statement saying they take the safety of service members, civilians and their families who support them very seriously and their security forces took appropriate action and followed protocols to ensure the safety and security of the base.
No further details on the incident will be released.
