The Detroit Arsenal Visitor Control Center | (586) 282-5757
All persons entering the Detroit Arsenal are required to obtain a security identification badge from the Visitor Control Center (VCC).  The VCC is located between Van Dyke and Mound Roads, on the north side of Eleven Mile Road in the City of Warren, Michigan.

Phone: DSN 786.5757 or Commercial 586.282.5757.

Enter the Detroit Arsenal Eleven Mile Road Gate and make an immediate right into the parking lot adjacent to Building 232.

The VCC is where you receive a visitor or employee security identification badge for access to the Detroit Arsenal.  Persons with a DoD CAC or Military ID Card may self-sponsor for access.  Persons without CAC or Military ID must have a government sponsor submit a Visitor Badge Application (STA Form 17) prior to the visit.  All persons without a CAC or Military ID are subject to a Criminal History Record check prior to being granted access.

The VCC is open Monday through Friday, 0700 - 1400, except Holidays. Due to the high volume of visitor traffic from 0700 - 1000, permanent employee badges are normally processed between 1000 - 1400 hours
