  Airport Badging

To acquire an airport ID badge, an applicant begins by completing the necessary paperwork (a fingerprinting and badge application) and schedules an appointment with the Airport Security Office.

The Fingerprinting and Badge Application (see form) must be presented with two valid forms of identification:

  1. Approved government-issued photo ID
  2. Proof of citizenship (examples:  original state-issued birth certificate, valid U.S. passport, or legal residency with work authorization)

All information regarding the individual’s name, age, gender, and other vital statistics on both forms of identification must be consistent and verifiable.
