FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) - Fort Carson is tightening requirements for visitors, and longer waits at entrance gates are expected.

The post will start implementing the new requirements on Jan. 5, and they will be fully in place by May 1.

Post officials say anyone who doesn’t have an identification card from the Defense Department or another federal agency will undergo a background check with the National Crime Information Center.

Anyone who is on the terrorist watch list or has an outstanding arrest warrant or recent felony conviction won’t be allowed in.

Officials say visitors must have a valid reason for entering the post. The Army says the requirements will apply to contractors as well as members of the public.

The post says the new rules are at the direction of Army Secretary John McHugh.
