NCIC Background Check required for Fort Campbell Access starting August 15th


Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Visitors to Fort Campbell will no longer be allowed to enter the installation based on the scanning of their driver’s license at the Access Control Points.

Effective August 15th, 2014, anyone wanting to access Fort Campbell unaccompanied by a Federal Government ID card-holder must successfully pass a National Crime Information Center, or NCIC, background check.

The NCIC is operated by the FBI and contains information from federal, state, local and foreign criminal justice agencies. A check of records through the NCIC is the Army’s minimum baseline background check for entrance onto installations for non-government ID card holders, including visitors.
