The Airport Security Division is responsible for managing an effective airport security program that ensures a safe and secure environment at the world's busiest airport while exceeding customers' expectations and complying with applicable regulations, laws, and codes.


The Security Office is located on the third floor of the North Terminal (Blue Side).

As you enter the airport via the North Terminal, proceed to the American Airlines ticket counter #55. Once you reach the ticket counter, behind you will be an alcove with a blue & white sign that reads “Aviation Security Division” on the wall. Over the top of the alcove there will be a 3-D sign that reads Lost and Found.

Once you enter the alcove, there is an elevator. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor. As soon as you exit the elevator, the security office will be directly in front of you.
