Confiscation of CAC Cards and DoD Identification Cards
Effective 1 June 2010, Access Control Point Security Guards for Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield began confiscating mutilated and/or expired Government Identification Cards, i.e., Active Duty Military ID’s, Retired Military ID’s, Dependent Family Member ID’s, and Government Issued Common Access Cards (CACs). The Security Guards will explain the reason for confiscation and then will provide a receipt to the individual.
Once a day the Security Guards will take all confiscated ID cards to the Military Police Station. The Military Police will turn-in all non-active duty ID cards the next work day to the installation ID Card Section (Soldier Service Center at Building 253 - FSGA or ACS at Bldg 1286 -HAAF). For active duty members, supervisors in the rank of E7 and above may come to the MP Station to sign for the subordinate’s ID Card. By doing so, the supervisor is assuming the responsibility of ensuring Soldiers obtain a new ID card from their respective brigade’s ID Card section.
Examples of Mutilated, Expired or Altered ID’s include but are not limited to the following:
- CAC card missing the Memory Chip (Gold Chip)
- Cards not being legible
- Pictures that are unrecognizable
- Lamination split or coming off
- Damage that prevents identifying information from being verified
- Evidence that the card has been or attempted to be altered
