Abstract: The Rice-Chertoff Initiative (RCI) Department of Homeland Security. Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP) was developed as a voluntary program by DHS to provide a one-stop mechanism for individuals to request redress who believe they have been: (1) Denied or delayed boarding; (2) denied or delayed entry into or departure from the United States at a port of entry; or (3) identified for additional (secondary) screening at our Nation's transportation hubs, including airports, seaports, train stations and land borders. The DHS TRIP office will be located at, and managed by, TSA. In order for individuals to request redress, they are asked to provide identifying information, as well as details of the travel experience. Individuals can do so online at http://www.dhs.gov/​trip. DHS TRIP then passes the information to the relevant DHS component to process the request, as appropriate.
