Increased security screenings planned at Arlington Cemetery
ARLINGTON, Va. - Arlington National Cemetery will increase its security measures, including requiring a government-issued photo ID for people arriving in cars and screening pedestrian visitors.
Cemetery spokeswoman Jennifer Lynch said in an email Monday that the measures will be phased in starting in November.
All vehicle access will require presenting ID such as a driver's license or passport when entering the cemetery and will be subject to random inspections.
All pedestrians will be screened through the welcome center. Lynch says the screenings will be similar to those at museums in the national capital, where bags and briefcases are generally checked by hand.
