(3) Entry to and exit from motor pools and parks will be controlled. Leave open only the
minimum number of gates or openings. These should be necessary for efficient operations.
(4) Use of a common or master key to secure Army vehicles, motor pools, or parks will be
forbidden. Keys and locks will be stringently controlled (See Appendix F at the end of this subcourse).
Vehicles with ammunition aboard will be safeguarded according to standards and provisions of AR 190-
3. Establish Physical Security for Repair Parts and Their Storage Area.
a. Stocks of repair parts will be stored in a single area. The area will be readily accessible to
maintenance and supply personnel. The following measures must be done to the greatest extent
(1) Portable repair parts will be secured by one of the following means:
(a) In a locked, separate building or room.
The area should meet security standards
outlined in Appendix G at the end of this subcourse.
(b) In a locked, steel cage.
(c) In a locked, built-in container (bin, drawer, cabinet); or in a free-standing container large
and heavy enough to be non-portable with stored parts.
(d) To the building in which located, or other permanent structure.
b. Non-portable repair parts will be secured by storing them in a building with doors and windows
locked during non-operational hours. Bulky or heavy items are sometimes stored outside. These will
be protected by a perimeter barrier and security lighting. Such security measures will meet the
standards outlined in Appendix E at the end of this subcourse.
c. Access to repair parts storage areas and padlock keys will be strictly controlled.
d. Some items are identified with a pilferage code in the Army Master Data File (AMDF). These
items signal a need for more intensive management practices. Added security measures may also be
necessary. Some COs and supervisors have supply and maintenance activities which keep stock
record accounts of pilferage items. These COs and supervisors will do the following:
(1) Ensure all their personnel handling such items know their AMDF designation. Ensure that
they know the increased risk for pilferage or illegal diversion. Also, ensure that personnel are aware of
any special procedures for control and protection of these items.
