Badge Application Updated - Please Use the New Ones!

Airport Security has updated its fingerprinting and badging applications (click on "Forms" below to get the current version). Airport Security will no longer accept the old applications as of June 1st, 2018, and applicants bringing the old application will be turned away.

Denver International Airport Security manages security functions for the airport workforce community. Airport Security also ensures that airport identification badge holders are in compliance with the rules and regulations related to the possession and use of airport ID badges.

Airport Security is responsible for issuing airport ID badges, assigning and maintaining access to airport facilities, issuing vehicle permits, and verifying employees have cleared the required Security Threat Assessment (STA) and Criminal History Record Check (CHRC) prior to receiving their airport ID badge.
