TSA precheck is available to most people who have been convicted of a sex offense. In fact, the only registrants who are categorically excluded from the TSA precheck are those convicted of rape or aggravated assault.
The list of those who are not eligible for TSA precheck includes, but is not limited to, individuals on a terrorist watchlist as well as those who have been convicted of espionage, sedition, treason, murder and transporting explosives. In addition, the TSA has a list of interim disqualifying criminal offenses including, but not limited to, individuals convicted of bribery, extortion and arson.
“ACSOL is providing this information in order to answer a question asked during its monthly meeting held on March 20,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.
TSA precheck allows airline passengers during the screening process to continue wearing their shoes and belts as well as carry liquids and take food onto flights. The same passengers also qualify for the TSA precheck line which is often shorter than the line for other passengers.
