Homeland Security opens speedy screening centers in Cincinnati, Columbus


Air travelers from the Dayton region will have to visit locations in Cincinnati and Columbus to enroll in a new service to speed airport security screening.

The Transportation Security Administration said it will begin taking applications from travelers Wednesday at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

TSA is calling the expedited screening program TSA Pre✓. The application site will be located on the baggage claim level next to the Airport Chapel. A similar site is opening in Columbus Thursday at 2700 E. Dublin Granville Road Suite 450.

More location are coming in Ohio, but for the time being the Cincinnati and Columbus sites will be where Dayton region travelers need to go to complete their applications.

The service allows travelers to leave on shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep a laptop in the case and as well as liquids and gels in carry-on bags provided they meet regulations.

Only U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents can apply. A pre-enrollment process is available online at www.TSA.gov/tsa-precheck. Applicants must then complete enrollment at the airport’s application center to verify identity and provide documentation that confirms citizenship or immigration status. Fingerprints are also required.

The application center will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Applicants with questions may contact the Universal Enrollment Call Center at 1-855-347-8371 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-10 p.m.

TSA said it is currently expanding to more than 300 application centers across the country.
