The 75th Air Base Wing has established Jan. 1 as the final date in which the Individual Video Imaging System (IVIS) contractor badge, the IVIS Long Term Visitor's badge, the IVIS DV badge and the AFMC Form 354 (blue in color) civilian dependent ID or retired civilian ID will be accepted for entry to the base.
Individuals who are currently using these forms of ID will be notified by the sentry at the installation gate of the need to get replacement ID.
Then after Jan. 1, the sentry will punch a hole in the upper right corner of the ID and allow the individual to proceed onto the base. The individual is granted the one-time entry to obtain the necessary paperwork to acquire the appropriate ID. The sentry will tell the individual to contact Pass and Registration, the Military Personnel Flight or their security manager upon the earliest opportunity and direct the individual to replace the ID as soon as possible. Those who visit the base on a weekend upon that first visit will be given a chance to re-enter the base to secure their ID as necessary if the previously mentioned agencies or the security manager is not available because of the weekend hours.
These changes are part of a new security instruction affecting installation entry at all Air Force bases as a matter of policy. Air Force Instruction 31-113, Installation Perimeter Access Control, requires security personnel to scan DoD or locally produced PACS/DBIDS ID cards for access to the base. The AFI was issued earlier this year. Hill Air Force Base began scanning ID cards in April of this year and is steadily moving forward to issuing PACS/DBIDS cards to those who require them.
All retired military personnel should note that their DoD-issued ID will not need to be replaced unless it is the old manually produced laminated paper DD Form 2AF or a DD Form 2AF that was issued prior to January 2003.
All individuals accessing the base are asked to exercise patience during the transition process.
Security Assistant Sam Ingram, 75th Security Forces Squadron, said that every effort will be made to keep the base secure and delays to a minimum.
