Laramie Guard Company to Keep Terror Watch

Cheyenne, WY – The guard is reassigning responsibility for protecting the state against terrorism from the 67th Army Band in Wheatland to the 133rd Engineer Company in Laramie. The Guard's Quick Reaction Force is Wyoming's front line response, in conjunction with the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, to terrorism and criminal activities that overwhelm local
law enforcement. The members of the unit provide security, patrols,check points, and other duties in support of civilian authorities. The governor has the authority to activate the group for state
emergencies. The guard says reassigning the force to Laramie ensures that more soldiers can be trained in the force.
