Biometric Readers Are Underway

The new biometric palm readers have been installed in the RAF1 tunnel entry door and the RAF1 side glass door. Fingerprint readers will remain at the RAF2 tunnel entry door to avoid disruption while users are becoming comfortable with the palm readers. You can expect to see a palm reader at the RAF2 tunnel entry door in the next couple weeks.

If you have not yet had your palm scanned into the system, please visit the SHC Security Photo ID office at your earliest convenience.
