Security Forces will be enforcing this policy immediately.  If children are found in violation, they will be stopped until parents are able to come get them or they will be escorted home.  Please direct any questions to the Security Forces Law Enforcement Desk at (501) 987-3221.


Little Rock Air Force Base implemented an Air Force-wide requirement of the REAL ID Act to its installation access policies Sept. 15, 2016.

The act establishes minimum security standards for license issue and production. Additionally, it prohibits federal agencies from accepting driver’s licenses and ID cards from states that do not meet the Act’s minimum standards. 

The REAL ID ACT enhances security by improving the reliability of state-issued identification documents and helps prevent a person's ability to evade detection by using a fraudulent form of ID.

Including Arkansas, 47 states, are compliant with the REAL ID Act and implemented changes mid-September. Currently, Minnesota, Washington and the U.S. territory of the American Samoa do not meet minimum standards.

For more information about how the REAL ID Act could affect you, read the following article.
