Due to heightened security measures, only ticketed passengers are allowed past security checkpoints. If you are escorting a minor or special needs passenger who is traveling alone, please contact your airline carrier to obtain a companion pass and for additional information. This pass will allow you to escort the individual through the security checkpoint and to the gate.

The security checkpoint at JAX is conveniently located in the courtyard area. The courtyard is a perfect place to meet arriving passengers since each concourse exits into it. While you wait, you can relax, shop or enjoy a meal from one of the many concessionaires.

Be advised that TSA Regulations prohibit anyone from parking or leaving vehicles unattended for any length of time at the curb. If picking up a passenger, vehicles may stop at the curb if the passenger is physically standing at the curb with their luggage. If dropping off a passenger, you may stop at the curb and assist the passenger with unloading their luggage.

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority Police Department is charged with protecting the rights of all tenants and visitors, against intimidation, harassment and acts that are based on race, religion, ethnicity, color, ancestry, sexual orientation, national origin, homeless status, mental or physical disability and/or advanced age.

Investigative detentions, traffic stops, arrests, searches, and property seizures by officers will be based on a standard of reasonable suspicion or probable cause in accordance with the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Officers must be able to articulate specific facts and circumstances that support reasonable suspicion or probable cause for investigative detentions, traffic stops, arrests, non-consensual searches, and property seizures.

Tenants or visitors who feel they have been stopped or searched due to bias-based profiling are encouraged to file a complaint with the Police Department.

Complaints may be filed in person, by mail, electronic mail, telephone or online. To file a complaint, please include all the facts, names, dates, and places known.
