NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - People entering Norfolk Naval Station can expect delays while the Navy tests an automatic identification scanning program.
The six-week pilot scanning period begins Monday. Navy-issued identification cards of drivers entering the installation will be scanned by gate officers.
Base spokeswoman Terri Davis tells The Virginian-Pilot ( http://bit.ly/Q4aOti) that no one will be turned away due to the scan during the pilot period. But that will change when the scanning program goes live. That could happen by December.
The program is part of a miltarywide initiative to tighten base security.
Davis says drivers can correct clearance problems and defective ID cards during the pilot scanning period.
