The installation commander has lifted the off-limits ban that barred active duty military members from entering La Rouge nightclub in Warner Robins. The change in status is effective immediately.

Col. Carl Buhler, 78th Air Base Wing commander, placed the establishment off limits after an Airman was killed outside the club Sept. 4.

The off-limits order was issued as a precautionary measure to maintain good order and ensure the safety and welfare of active duty service members at Robins.

The order was lifted after La Rouge management worked with local and Air Force law enforcement personnel and satisfactorily enhanced security measures at the establishment.

"My primary concern is for the safety and well being of our Airmen," Buhler said. "I'm satisfied the management of La Rouge has addressed the critical security concerns."
