Requesting a Courtesy Inspection:

Intent: The intent of DOD's Physical Security Program is the protection of property
and personnel to ensure that units are able to perform their primary mission. To
assist commanders with complying with Physical Security requirements, the JBLM
DES PSO will conduct a courtesy inspection of a unit's program. Unit commanders
may contact their assigned inspector to request a courtesy inspection. This should be
done 90 days prior to a scheduled inspection for record. The PSO will not conduct a
courtesy inspection within 21 days of a scheduled inspection for record.

Something to think about:

Take the time to protect your unit and to protect yourself. Make sure equipment and tools are accounted for and properly secured when you leave your work area. Do not leave your military items or personal property visible in your vehicle.
