Know + Go: TSA may add fast screening program

  • Updated: January 5, 2013 - 1:00 PM

The Transportation Security Administration has launched a pilot program that lets average travelers speed through security checkpoints. The program, dubbed Managed Inclusion, is being tested at the Indianapolis and Tampa, Fla., international airports. The program makes use of the PreCheck security lines, which are reserved for pre-screened travelers. People passing through those lines can keep on their shoes, belts and coats and are not required to take computers and liquid containers out of their carry-on bags. Under the new program, regular travelers not enrolled in the program can be invited to use the PreCheck lines if they pass inspection from an explosive-sniffing dog and a TSA agent who is specially trained to detect suspicious behavior.
