August 2014. Getting on a U.S. Military Base Will Now Include an FBI Background Check

DOMESTIC

Getting on a U.S. Military Base Will Now Include an FBI Background Check

Members of the defense community, starting this Friday, automatically will be screened against the FBI’s criminal database when they try entering military installations and pulled aside if the system shows an arrest, felony or outstanding warrant.

The new Defense Department tool is part of a larger, government-wide effort to continuously vet people with access to secure facilities, following shootings at Fort Hood and the Navy Yard.
Identification smartcards issued to troops, veterans, relatives and other individuals permitted to enter military bases have long been checked against a DOD database before access is granted. But an instant FBI background check has never been part of the process.


Beginning this week, DOD’s information technology system will tap the FBI’s National Crime Information Center system.
