If memory serves, the SCIF badge is to only be worn while in the SCIF. Otherwise, it is to be concealed. Check the regs and double check with the Security Manager of the SCIF. But, my instincts tell me that these folks are in the extreme wrong and violating protocol.

SPC (Join to see) - I can see someone leaving base who forgot they had not taken it off - but coming on base? That's ridiculous. And their SIPR token in the cupholder...why? I always have that in my ACU pocket because I don't need it anywhere but work.

It's mindboggling how ignorant people are on security incidents/violations.

SFC (Join to see) the worse part is it’s contractors not the SM’s so they have worked in intel for at least a couple years but still don’t want to follow protocol sergeant

I was trained to keep mine concealed, not sure if a regulation covers it.

SPC (Join to see) you may be best served by raising the issue with a security officer responsible for the SCIF, rather than trying to enforce something that, despite being a good on-the-spot-correction, will not have the desired impact.
I never understood why folks with ID badges feel it's necessary to wear them like the badges are some sort of award.

It's not a regulation, it's policy depending on the organization.

Wearing badges as such could allow outside individuals the opportunity to take pictures of the badge and attempt to recreate them. This would obviously allow unauthorized personnel in areas that they are not allowed in. I would simply ask the individuals who are wearing them through the gate to ensure that they are concealed until the reach the entrance to the building.
