Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow has been directed to implement policies that focus on the access control procedures for visitors. MCLB Barstow takes active measures to address unauthorized access to the base and the protection of forces, residents and civilian employees. These policies are intended to help Marines accomplish the mission and keep families aboard MCLB Barstow safe.
Visitors of the base must present their driver's license to the sentry at an installation access control point (gate) and identify who they are going to visit. The sentry will record the driver's name, license number, date and time of entry. The license is authenticated and an instant background check through open public sources is conducted. After favorable results, the visitor is allowed aboard the installation.
