This program ensures that any individual who has unescorted access to secure areas of port facilities and vessels has received a thorough background check and is not a known security threat. TSA released specific dates for the following ports:

  1. Vicksburg, Miss. (Jan. 31, 2008)
  2. Muskegon, Mich. (Jan. 31, 2008)
