Dear TSA Waiver Review Board:
My name is [name]. My home address is [ ]. My phone number is [ ]. I was born on [birth date] in [place of birth]. I am writing to respectfully request a waiver of the offenses listed in the letter I received from TSA, [list offenses].
The circumstances surrounding these offenses [this offense] are as follows. I was [how old?]. [Explain here what happened, how/why you were arrested.]
I was sentenced to [how many months/years incarceration/probation?] and was released in [month, year].
Since my release from incarceration/probation, I have made every effort to turn my life around and stay on the right track. [explain what you’ve done, your work at the port, work history, your participation in the community, your general rehabilitation, etc.]
I regret the mistakes I made. I am a different person now, and I can assure you that I present no security risk by working at the port, and that I need this job to support myself and my family.
Thank you for considering my waiver request. Sincerely,
