TSA Pre? is a program set in place by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) that aims to create more efficient security screening by identifying and registering frequent fliers. Those registered with the program are treated to faster moving lines thanks to an expedited screening process, which doesn't necessitate the removal of items like belts, shoes and jackets. Leading provider of identity solutions and services, MorphoTrust USA, has been at the helm of the program ensuring that the security screening and registration process is as safe as possible, and the partnership has recently led to the opening of six new enrollment centers for TSA Pre? at different airports around the nation.
The new call centers allow travelers to apply for the TSA Pre? program at six new airports: Boston Logan International, Charlotte Douglas International, Pittsburgh International, Tampa International, Orlando International and at Lambert-St. Louis International. This raises the number of locations where people can register for the program to more than 282 locations.
Of course, a program like this requires the utmost levels of security in order to be safe – clearing a dangerous individual for the fast track on TSA security screening could potentially have disastrous results. Thankfully, MorphoTrust USA is already trusted by several federal and state agencies to provide the best identity and background research solutions available in the industry. Their identification programs combine traditional techniques like document authentication with biometric identification of individuals, using their faces, fingerprints, skin samples and even irises to ensure that someone is exactly who they say they are.
MorphoTrust USA provides the TSA with more than just the TSA Pre? application program, as the company is working under a Universal Enrollment Services (UES) contract with the TSA. MorphoTrust USA is also trusted to conduct enrollment verification on airport staff with the Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) program, as well as the Hazardous Materials Endorsement Threat Assessment Program (HTAP).
