Multnomah County Airport Security

The TSA Office screens travelers at Multnomah County Airports to prevent prohibited items in secure areas of the airport and on airplanes. In Portland, airport security screenings include metal detectors, advanced imaging technology screenings, and pat-down screenings. Passenger screening includes screening carry-on bags, electronics like laptops, and carry-on liquids, which must be placed in a quart-sized bag in travel-sized containers of no more than 3.4 ounces. TSA also prescreens passengers before they arrive at the airport, including identifying high-risk passengers by checking their names against watch lists. The TSA also reports estimated security line wait times at the Portland Airport.

In addition to screening passengers and carry-on bags, the TSA Office oversees other forms of security screening, including scanning checked baggage for illegal or banned items. These include explosives, weapons, and other dangerous items. The TSA maintains a watch list of passengers not allowed on airplanes and works with intelligence and Multnomah County law enforcement agencies to identify potential threats.
