Weapon Registration

Concealed Weapons are unauthorized on Fort Lee unless the individual is a law enforcement officer in the performance of his/her official duties.

The Weapon Registration Form is available at the Weapon Registration Office (Dukes Welcome Center) or it can be download using the link below. DO NOT BRING WEAPONS to the Registration Office.
