DoD Issues Policy on Conduct at Raven Rock Mountain

05.25.07 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

The Department of Defense has issued a new statement of security policy for the Raven Rock Mountain Complex, also known as Site R, which is one of the U.S. government’s emergency command centers and relocation sites.

Although it is located in Pennsylvania, not Virginia, Raven Rock was legally designated in 2003 as part of the Pentagon Reservation, and the new policy reflects that change.

Among other things, the policy dictates that “it shall be unlawful to make any photograph, sketch, picture, drawing, map or graphical representation of the … Raven Rock Mountain Complex without first obtaining the necessary permission.”

The policy was published in the Federal Register on May 25.
