Important Visitor Information:

The ALSDE has implemented new security procedures.  As a result, visitors may only enter the Gordon Persons Building through designated public access entries.  The public access entries are located at the intersections of:  Monroe St. and Jackson St. and Ripley St. and Pelham St.  Each entry has a metal detector and a security guard.  To gain entry into the building, visitors must go through a metal detector and be prepared to have their bags searched. 


After gaining entry during normal Visitor Management Desk hours, visitors will be instructed to proceed to the Visitor Management Desk located on the 5th floor.  At the Visitor Management Desk, visitors will register and receive a visitor's badge before being escorted to their destination by an ALSDE employee.  Visitors will utilize the security system outside of normal Visitor Desk Management hours.
