Fort Jackson begins escorting visitors
Fort Jackson officials will now begin escorting visitors to the post to comply with new Army policy. Anyone without a Department of Defense ID card will have to be escorted during his entire time on Fort Jackson (or any other Army installation), or be vetted by the Physical Security Office for non-escorted access.
To obtain credentials for non-escorted access, the Physical Security Office is required to run a background check through the FBI National Crime Database. Once favorably vetted, individuals will be issued credentials allowing them access to Fort Jackson. Individuals must keep these credentials with them at all times.
The vetting and credentialing office is located at the Gate 2 (Forest Drive, Exit 12 off of I-77) entrance. Military sponsors of contractors can also visit Physical Security at Building 4394 on Strom Thurmond Boulevard during normal duty hours (7:30 a.m.- 4 p.m., Monday through Friday) to expedite contractor credentialing.
We apologize for the delay as we process the surge of requests within our limited resources.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
