  • As of March 2017, visitors will be asked to provide a driver’s license or state issued ID that will be scanned into our new visitor system, and a photo of the visitor will be taken. A visitor pass with an expiration date will be printed and provided to the visitor. Once a visitor’s information and photo is in the system, he or she will not have to repeatedly provide ID or have a photo taken. For future visits, the visitor’s name will be recognized and the pass issued. If you have any questions, please contact Security at 443-444-4300.
