Cherry Point Security Checking IDs

Officials at the base in Havelock say there is no change in the security level, but they are checking IDs of everyone coming on base today.

Traffic is much heavier than normal getting on base because of the security precaution. Public affairs officials at the base say checking IDs is one of the security precautions they can enact randomly. They say it makes the base "less susceptible" to getting attacked.

People going on base should plan to spend extra time in traffic. The base said, to be on the safe side, people should try to plan an extra 20 to 30 minutes to get on base this morning and again this evening, during heavy traffic times.

    it could be alot worse! im stationed in VA and live in base housing on an AF base and they never ever check ID's and you dont have to have a base sticker to get in! I would trade a slight delay getting home to keep people that dont belong on base off!

    @ Thomas, every base does this at times not just Cherry Point, so I don't see what the big deal is! If you are have all the proper stuff what's the problem? Maybe you need to leave a few minutes earlier for work and not wait till the last minute and drive 70 mph down the 70 each and every day so your not late and get in trouble by your Ssgt!
