INFORMATION AND ACCESS CONTROL
Military CAC or ID Holders
If you are traveling in the same vehicle as a military sponsor (Military ID or Common Access Card holder), you do not need a visitors' pass or background check to enter the installation, provided your visit is escorted by the sponsor. DBIDs cardholders are NOT sponsors. If you are an DBIDS Cardholder, visitors in your vehicle will need to be vetted on to the installation by having a background check.
In accordance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 and Army Regulation 190-13, all visitors and uncleared contractors desiring unescorted access to Fort Jackson, must be vetted through the National Crime Information Center Interstate Identification Index (NCIC III). NCIC III is the Army’s baseline background check for entrance onto Army installations for Non-Common Access Card (CAC) or Non-DoD card holders. Upon successful completion of a background check the individual(s) will be issued a Fort Jackson installation Access Badge. This badge is only good for access onto the installation and to be available for presentation to Installation Security personnel. It is not to be used as a form of identification for other purposes.
The Installation Commander will, in the absence of an approved waiver, deny uncleared contractors, subcontractors, and visitor’s unescorted access to the installation based on the results of the NCIC III check that contains credible derogatory information indicating the individual may present a threat to good order, discipline, or health and safety on the installation.
Here are the below factors that would constitute an access denial:
The NCIC III contains criminal arrest information about the individual that causes the Installation Commander to determine that individual presents a potential threat to the good order, discipline, or health and safety on the installation.
2. The installation is unable to verify the individual’s claimed identity based on the reasonable belief that the individual has submitted fraudulent information concerning his or her identity in the attempt to gain access.
3. The individual has a current arrest warrant in NCIC, regardless of the offense or violation.
4. The individual is currently barred from entry or access to a federal installation of facility.
5. The individual has been convicted of crimes encompassing sexual assault, armed robbery, rape, child molestation, production or possession of child pornography trafficking in humans, drug possession with the intent to sell or drug distribution.
6. The individual has a US conviction for espionage, sabotage, treason, terrorism or murder.
7. The individual is a registered sex offender.
8. The individual has a felony conviction within the past 10 years, regardless of the offense or violation.
9. The individual has been convicted of a felony firearms or explosives violation.
10. The individual has engaged in acts or activities designed to overthrow the U.S. Government by force.
11. The individual is identified in the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) as known to be or suspected of being a terrorist or belonging to an organization with known links to terrorism or support of terrorist activity.
For those person(s) not cleared and denied access, they will be given a denial access waiver packet to be completed and returned to the VCC. The denial waiver committee will review the packet and determine suitability for access to the installation.
As a reminder, all vehicle operators are required to have a valid state driver’s license and valid motor vehicle insurance.

Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (719) 567-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
