The Trusted Traveler Program is currently suspended.
Employees arriving at the gates should hold their CAC/DBIDS card up to the driver’s window with the barcode visible to the police officer to scan it. Be prepared to turn the ID over for the officer to inspect the photograph. If the officer cannot read the card with the scanner, he/she will ask the driver to roll down the window and extend the card outside the window. The officer will again scan the barcode without touching the ID to minimize contact while attempting to maximize physical distance.
Van pool riders can expect to physically provide the Police Officers at the gates their Identification Cards for inspections, and officers will have to be able to look inside the vehicle to validate IDs and passengers. Officers will be wearing masks/face coverings while engaged in this screening process to maximize the safety of van passengers.
