Posted at 7:02 AM, Jan 06, 2020

FORT CARSON — Fort Carson officials announced it is suspending the Trusted Traveler program that allows guests to enter the post without showing their IDs as long as they are accompanied by military members with a valid identification.

In a Facebook post published Sunday, officials said they will check everyone's ID in a vehicle entering through any installation gate.

The post indicated if a Department of Defense cardholder is in the vehicle, all other passengers will have to show a photo ID card if they are over 18 years old.

If someone has received a long-term installation pass, it will continue to be honored at all gates.

The program allowed uniformed service members and spouses, DOD employees, retired uniformed service members and spouses to bring guests on the post without the guests having to show their IDs, according to Fort Carson's website.

While the program is suspended, those who travel to Fort Carson should allow extra time to get through the gates.
