Proper Identification

A valid drivers license (or official Department of Defense (“DoD”) photo ID) is required to gain access to Fort Myer.

If an individual in the vehicle does not have the proper identification documents, (i.e., family member not old enough for an ID card, someone forgot a form of ID, etc.) the individual can be sponsored by a DoD cardholder in the vehicle or from the sponsoring activity. All personnel 18 or older must have a valid identification to enter the installation. The desk Sergeant may be contacted and may grant access, but any variations from this procedure will require a memorandum to the Chief of Police outlining the names, addresses, and reasons for violation of this procedure. Records of violations of this procedure will be kept and forwarded to the Director of Emergency Services and the Garrison Commander on a monthly basis.

For person(s) who do not have a drivers license, all states in the area will provide a valid identification with picture commonly referred to as a “walkers identification.”

Note: In the National Capital Region there are dozens of security badges. Security badges are designed for an individual to gain access into a building not an installation. Installations will not accept security badges as a sole identification document. The security badge must be used in conjunction with another form of identification. With the exception of a photo and person’s name, security badges lack sufficient data to identify the bearer. Also, security badges are not linked to a central database that can be cross-referenced by law enforcement.
