The Transportation Safety Administration is turning to the crowd for ways to improve its PreCheck expedited security screening program. The TSA’s listing on the InnoCentive crowdsourcing platform promised to reward the best ideas on how to improve PreCheck processes with a share of $15,000 in prize money.
