The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has mandated Security Directives for all Part 139 Airports. Under this directive, all individuals having unescorted access to the Airport Operations Area (AOA) will be required to have Airport identification badges. The AOA is defined as all areas within the fenced portion of the airport.
To issue identification badges, the airport must collect information from each individual, perform a security check and train each individual as to their responsibilities. In some cases individuals may be required to pass a fingerprint-based criminal history records check.

Badge Expiration and Renewal
Badges expire on your birthday, typically two years from the issue date. You will not receive a reminder notice from Airport Management that the badge is close to expiring. The expiration date is clearly printed on the front of the badge. Badge renewal hours are as follows: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only between the hours of 10:00 AM to 12:00 NOON and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Our office can be contacted at 781-5205 during business hours (8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday except holidays).

FOR BADGES THAT HAVE EXPIRED, THE BADGE HOLDER MUST CONTACT AIRPORT MANAGEMENT NO LATER THAN 30 DAYS AFTER THE EXPIRATION DATE TO ARRANGE FOR IT'S RENEWAL. IF MANAGEMENT IS NOT CONTACTED WITHIN THIS TIME THE BADGE WILL BE DISABLED AND MARKED AS LOST.
