TSA PreCheck Now Processing in Portland

Portland, ME - The Transportation Security Administration has begun processing applications at its UES Enrollment Center on Lancaster Street in downtown Portland says a TSA spokesperson earlier this week.  TSA Pre™ helps strengthen security by identifying low-risk individuals through pre-screening. This allows TSA to focus resources on travelers about whom we know less, while providing the most effective security in the most efficient way.

Passengers who have been issued a Known Traveler Number (KTN) by TSA or CBP have generally undergone a vetting process or background check as part of their employment or via a DHS Trusted Traveler program.  Since TSA knows more about these passengers they are more likely to be eligible for TSA Pre™ screening more often than passengers the agency knows less about.  TSA and the majority of the TSA Pre™ participating airlines have invited certain frequent flyers to “opt-in” to participate in TSA Pre™. These passengers’ can expect to receive TSA Pre™ screening more often than passengers who have not been invited to participate, but less often than those who have been assigned a KTN.

Passengers who are deemed eligible for TSA Pre™ via one of these two TSA initiatives will receive TSA Pre™ screening on a flight-by-flight basis and should not expect it each time they fly.
