1/5/2011 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- Monday, Keesler began registration for the Defense Biometric Identification System.

Registration for active-duty members and Defense Department employees runs through March 31. Registration for retirees and dependants is April 1 through June 31, but the pass and ID office won't turn away those wishing to register earlier.

The registration sits at the pass and registration office in the visitor center across from the White Avenue Gate is open. Other sites are planned at the military personnel section in Sablich Center, the exchange pharmacy and the 81st Medical Group Hospital's information desk.

With DBIDS, ID cards are scanned by gate guards with a hand-held device that provides real-time data that verifies identity electronically.

Everyone over the age of 16 who requires access to Keesler for more than three weeks must register in DBIDS.

Registration takes five minutes and involves scanning an ID card's barcode, verifying information and taking an electronic fingerprint.

All ID cards must have a barcode. Retirees who have ID cards without a barcode must obtain a new ID card from the military personnel section at the Sablich Center.

Individuals without a DOD ID card who requires long-term access to Keesler, such as a caregiver for a dependent child, must be accompanied by the person requiring their services to the MPF to obtain an agent card. This card, along with state-issued ID, vehicle registration and proof of insurance, must be presented to pass and registration to obtain a DBIDS Access ID card.

For more information, call 377-3844.
