The Airport ID Badge office is located on the baggage claim level of the Landside Terminal, near Baggage Claim “P.”
Effective July 27, 2015 the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has directed that airports must complete every two years a Criminal History Records Check (CHRC) for all individuals with Airport-issued Security IDs. This recurrent CHRC requires the re-fingerprinting or re-submittal of fingerprints stored with the Transportation Security Clearinghouse and transmittal of those to the FBI. In most cases, the fingerprint check will be managed through the Security ID Badge Office, although for domestic air carriers, the TSA allows the airport to accept, and we will accept, an airline's notification form that they have submitted fingerprints for each individual being rebadged and that those individuals have no disqualifying crimes.
Open Office Hours for fingerprinting, badge process, and video training are:
9 AM - Noon
9 AM – Noon and 1 – 4 PM
