Airport security just got a little easier for people living in Spokane. An enrollment center for the Transportation Safety Commission's program, PreCheck has opened up in the Spokane Valley.
"We travel a lot and we travel to a lot of major airports,? Leslie Johnston said. ?It makes a big difference when you're in a major airport."
Johnston was at the center at 12510 E. Sprague Avenue Thursday applying for PreCheck.
"I waited about three hours," Johnston said. "And that's this time. We came a little before lunch and got turned away."
The process only takes about ten minutes, but could take longer if applicants don't make an appointment. Interested people should go online and fill out the application at universalenroll.dhs.gov. From there, Spokane applicants can go to Absolute Drug Testing at the east Sprague location where they'll verify their citizenship or immigration status and be fingerprinted. There's an $85 non-refundable fee, which has turned off some travelers from taking advantage of PreCheck.
