Photo I.D.’S Required To Enter Southampton Town Hall Beginning May 1st  


Beginning May 1st, persons doing business in Southampton Town Hall will be required to register at a new security checkpoint located in the main lobby.  Registration will require a government issued photo I.D.   Beginning May 7th, visitor identification’s will be scanned and a dated visitor’s pass will be issued. 

“This new security checkpoint comes at a time when our country has experienced a number of violent incidents in schools and other workplaces,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman.  “There has been no threat against Town Hall, but we must do our part to keep both the public and our employees safe.”

Government issued photo ID’s include:

  • Driver’s License or photo I.D. card issued by federal, any state or local government agencies or entities, that contains a photo, and/or information such as name, address, date of birth, gender, height and eye color
  • School I.D. card with a photograph
  • U.S. Passport (Unexpired or expired)
  • An unexpired foreign passport with a temporary I-551 stamp
  • Permanent Resident Card or Alien Registration Receipt Card (Form I-551)
  • An unexpired Employment Authorization Document that contains a photograph (Form I-766, I-688, I-688A, I-688B)
  • An unexpired foreign passport with an unexpired Arrival-Departure Record, Form 194, bearing the same name as the passport and containing an endorsement of the individual’s nonimmigrant status, if that status authorizes the individual to work for an employer.

“Most, if not all, government buildings as well as our school buildings have all implemented a similar level of building access security,” said Southampton Town Code Compliance and Emergency Management Administrator Steven Troyd.  “The safety of the public and our employees is paramount.”

Security checkpoint procedures will be operational throughout the day beginning at 8 a.m. when Town Hall is open to the public.
