Temporary TSA PreCheck application center set for June 20 to 23 at AAA in Freehold, N.J.

Residents of Monmouth County, N.J., and surrounding region will be able to enroll in the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) popular TSA PreCheck® program at the AAA office in Freehold, N.J., from June 20 to 23, where officials will host a temporary “pop-up” enrollment center in a specially marked IdentoGo®/TSA PreCheck mobile RV.

TSA PreCheck is more valuable than ever because it reduces touchpoints, and as individuals make plans to travel, this is an ideal time to enroll in the program. The application process allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to enroll directly in TSA PreCheck – an expedited screening program that allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on, in select TSA airport checkpoint screening lanes. More than 200 airports participate in TSA PreCheck nationwide and more than 80 airlines participate in the program.

Travelers need only to make an appointment online (appointments are being taken now) and complete their enrollment in-person or as a walk-in from Monday, June 20, to Thursday, June 23, from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 5 p.m. in the parking lot of the AAA office, located at 3478 US 9, Freehold, NJ 07728.

To participate in this enrollment opportunity, travelers should make an appointment online and pre-enroll online. It typically only takes 10 minutes to pre-enroll. After completing the pre-enrollment steps, applicants type in the location “Freehold, NJ,” and click on the search button to select the enrollment site for “Truck Pop-Up.” Applicants can select an appointment time using the drop down menu to choose a date and time. The drop-down menu will show the first available time available, but individuals can choose a different date and/or time using that drop-down menu. The mobile RV is equipped with steps and is not wheelchair accessible. If needed, the nearest permanent location that is ADA compliant is posted on the TSA web site.
