Visitor Control Center Locations:
LAAFB: We are located in Bldg. 260, just to the immediate left of the Los Angeles AFB entrance, just past the fence line leading to the Douglas Street main gate. The facility is a state-of-the-art Visitor Control Center. We prepare and issue temporary visitor passes, vehicle passes, and DBIDS passes. We also coordinate access for special events, contractors, companies, vendors, and visitors, including Aerospace Corporation, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, United Launch Alliance, SpaceX and others in support of Space and Missile Systems Center or Los Angeles AFB mission requirements.
Ft. MacArthur: We are located in Bldg. 28, adjacent to the Ft. MacArthur main gate. We issue temporary visitor passes for the housing areas and are open modified hours. We are here in order to help serve our geographically separated locations at Ft MacArthur, Pacific Heights, and Pacific Crest Housing areas.
Visitors can obtain entry by having their sponsor meet them at the Visitor Control Center in order to assist them in getting a temporary visitor pass. Visitors over the age of 18 must have a valid picture ID to be allowed access to the base. (Processing procedures are subject to change depending on current FPCON/HPCON levels.)
