Ft. Benning Access

All personnel who are requesting unescorted access to Fort Benning and not in possession of a DOD ID card, Federal PIV or an installation AIE pass/AIE card will undergo a National Crime Information Center Interstate Identification Index (NCIC-III) background check. This check involves verifying the individual’s identity and checking their criminal history against the Army Fitness Adjudication Standards.

The standards are:

  1. NCIC-III contains criminal arrest information about the individual that causes the senior commander to determine that the person presents a threat to good order, discipline, or health and safety on the installation.
  2. A claimed identity that cannot be verified based on the reasonable belief that the person submitted fraudulent identity information in an attempt to gain access.
  3. Current arrest warrant in NCIC, regardless of the offense or violation.
  4. Current bar from entry or access to a Federal installation or facility.
  5. Conviction of crimes encompassing sexual assault, armed robbery, rape, child molestation, production or possession of child pornography, trafficking in humans, or drug possession with the intent to sell or distribute.
  6. Conviction of espionage, sabotage, sedition, treason, terrorism, or murder.
  7. Being registered sex offender.
  8. Felony conviction within the last 10 years regardless of the offense or violation.
  9. Felony conviction for a firearms or explosives violation regardless of when the conviction occurred.
  10. Engaged in acts or activities designed to overthrow the S. Government by force.
  11. Been identified in the NCIC KST file or TSDB report as known to be, or is suspected of being, a terrorist or belonging to an organization with known links to terrorism or support of terrorist activity.
