Visitor Badges and Escorting
Airport Operations Bulletin 10-01  contains complete details and regulations regarding the use of Visitor Badges and Escorting.
New Visitor badges are issued by the Security Access Office (SAO)  and may only be obtained through written request to Jeff Littlefield, Manager, Security Access Office. Visitor badges must be controlled by the requestor (or a custodian designated by the requestor) and the number and location of Visitor badges under an airport employer's custody may be audited at any time. Lost or stolen Visitor badges must be reported in accordance with current guidelines; however, a fee may be assessed whether or not the loss is reported.
Only authorized employees may escort another employee or visitor in the Sterile, AOA or Secured Areas. To obtain authorization, the employer must fill out an Escort Authority Request form  for the employee requesting escort authority.
The form must be brought in person to the SAO where the applicant will read about and acknowledge understanding of the escort training procedures.
Authorized escorts are permitted to escort an employee or an airport "visitor" (with Visitor badge) with a legitimate business purpose – escorts are strictly prohibited from using Visitor badges to escort co-workers, passengers, friends or family into Sterile Areas or the AOA/SIDA. Escorts are not permitted to escort an AOA-badged employee or another employee who has lost their badge or been denied access. In addition to wearing the Visitor badge on the outermost garment above the waist, visitors must carry government-issued I.D.; escorts much check to make sure the I.D. is valid and is not expired.
The number of escorted individuals is limited to no more than eight (8). Escorts are responsible for their visitor's actions and must maintain control at all times. With mutual agreement, it is acceptable to transfer escort responsibility to another authorized employee.
