  • Photos must be taken in full-face view, directly facing the camera, with a neutral facial expression or a natural smile, and with both eyes open.
  • Photos must be taken in front of a plain white, off-white, or neutral background.

Lost, stolen, or damaged badges are considered replacements. Damage could include holes, scratches, or bends, causing it to deactivate. Placing a badge near a cell phone and sun exposure may also demagnetize. Other than manufacturer defects, a replacement badge must be requested and purchased.
