New TSA Pre-Check Center Opens in Reno

Posted: Updated:

If you're a frequent air traveler - keep reading. You can now enroll in the TSA's new Pre-Check Program at a center that just opened in Reno.

The TSA's pre-Check Program allows qualified passengers to leave their shoes, belts and jackets on as they go through security. They can also keep their electronics and liquids in their bags.

To enroll-- you just have to give your name, proof of residency or citizenship and fingerprints.

It also costs about $85.

"We know that most passengers inherently pose a very low risk to security. And our goal is to identify those passengers and make sure that we can treat them accordingly," says TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers.

The center is located 1320 East Plumb Lane. It's open on weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
