More Requirements Expected For Access To Fort Knox

Officials at Fort Knox say requirements for access to the base are expected to get stricter next year.

Fort Knox Garrison Commander Col. T.J. Edwards told The News-Enterprise that he expects the Army to set a goal of vetting everyone who visits the base by running their information through the Nation Crime Information Center's database.

   Edwards said he expects the change, which stems from a review of the 2013 Washington Navy Yard shooting, to take place next year.

   The Secretary of the Army and the Army Chief of Staff plan to speak later this month about their inquiry into the shooting in which a civilian contractor killed 12 and injured three. Their points will focus on changing access to Army installations to prevent the possibility of a similar attack.
