ARA supports the Army’s Physical Security Branch of the Office of the Provost Marshal General (OPMG) as Action Officers. In this capacity, our primary responsibility is to support the Access Control Point Equipment Program (ACPEP) and Automated Installation Entry (AIE) program. The ACPEP provides maintenance and services to more than 150 Access Control Points (ACP) at 41 Army installations; the AIE program, which is currently being fielded, will be installed at 84 Army installations by 2020.
We maintain focus on lifecycle management by utilizing information obtained from maintenance efforts to assist installations with future equipment replacement planning and compatibility.
Additionally, we develop responses and staffing taskers, conduct policy review and analysis, and provide representation of the Physical Security Branch.
Access control is a critical physical security measure as part of force protection, so that those forces and assets are available to the Army to achieve its mission. Our subject matter experts have assisted OPMG in fielding new technology and policy to improve installation access and control, as well as planning for the future.
