Starting today at select checkpoints in four airports, TSA will begin testing “Pre✓,” another key component in our move toward a more risk-based, intelligence-driven approach to security. This limited pilot will help TSA evaluate measures designed to enhance security by placing more focus on pre-screening individuals prior to flying in order to expedite their travel experience.
- Testing expedited screening for known airline crew members
- Testing the expanded use of behavior detection techniques
- Nationwide changes to our physical security screening process for kids 12-and-under
All of these initiatives are designed to improve our security approach while enhancing the passenger’s security experience. We thank U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the airlines, and passengers for their partnership as we work to provide the most effective transportation security in the most efficient way.
