All contractors/consultants that need badges should submit their forms by email to

  • All forms must be filled out completely and signed. If the forms are not complete, we are unable to process the badges. Items that must be received:
    • Badge Certification Form is filled out by the companies' custodial of record, complete with names of employees of the company who are DOJ cleared and whom will be working on the site. Also, note if sub badges are needed. Twenty (20) sub badges are permitted per photo badge.
    • A Badge Checkout Form completed by the employee who is receiving a picture badge.
  • All documents must be sent together in one email, per project.
  • Project badges require the start and end date, project number, and PO (contract) number on the Badge Certification and Badge Checkout Forms.
  • We will process badges weekly. Once the badges are ready, an email will be sent to the company with the total cost.

Contractors/Consultants and their employees must check-in at the site office and wear district-issued badges at all times. If you or your employee(s) are not wearing a district-issued badge, that person will be asked to leave the site.
