Post provides details on new entry procedures


Vehicle decals will soon be a thing of the past at Fort Hood.

The installation is altering procedures and requirements for post access to comply with Department of Defense and Army policies. Beginning Sept. 1, vehicle registration will no longer be required to enter Fort Hood and the procedures for those entering the installation without a DoD ID card will change.

"The vehicle registration program focused on the vehicles, which did not comply with the current Department of Defense and Army policies for installation access," Chris Zimmer, deputy director, Fort Hood Directorate of Emergency Services, said. "Our new access procedures fully comply with all DoD and Army requirements for installation access."

The decision to stop vehicle registration and initiate 100-percent vetting of visitors is a significant change to current procedures and will require a transition period, Fort Hood officials said.
