Thanks @TSA for your absolute lack of respect for people's belongings, I just received this case open, this is the second time in 4 flights that they have completely destroyed this case full of microphones and put it back in absolute disarray. This is ridiculous. #TSA #TransportationSecurityAdministration

Wow... Thanks for INSPECTING my bag TSA. Especially for inspecting my ink bottles and leaving them open. Thanks for forgetting to repackage half of my equipment, and most of all thanks being so careful and respectful. #TSA #unitedairlines

TSA drafts in 2,000 agents (and 50 canine teams) to cope with the record-breaking 234MILLION expected to travel via the US this summer

2.54 million are believed to travel through the US each day from June-August.

The TSA has been forced to up their game and reduce security lines nationwide.

It has also installed automated screening lanes the nation's busiest airports.

The sight of long queues forming at US airports is nothing new.

In fact, thanks to the mass consumption of flight travel and its associated security risk, snaking security lines are almost the new normal.

So, with 234 million passengers projected to fly this summer, the #TransportationSecurityAdministration has boosted its workforce by thousands to cope with demand - and stem criticism in the process.

The Department of #HomelandSecurity agency, which ensures the safety of those using communal transport across #America, has drafted-in 2,000 new officers to help process the numbers, which are estimated at nine million more than 2016.

They've also added 50 canine teams, who'll help process the hordes of people passing through customs.

To streamline the process further, the agency has also joined forces with airlines to install automated screening lanes in some of America's most heavily-used portals. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾

Broken luggage. 💼🌚🗃 Thanks #tsa #transportationsecurityadministration

F*%k the TSA #transportationsecurityadministration #tsa who opened my bag, took out all my audio equipment and expensive camera and lenses #Leica #hasselblad and then tossed the stuff back into the bag without rewrapping it and then left a kind note just letting me know they're not liable for anything. We'll see about that. If anything is broken. #lawyer I fail to see how it is legal to take a perfectly well wrapped normal looking bag that has nothing but camera equipment and sunglasses in it and ruin it because of theoretical terror risk. What does that mean? You can't travel with camera equipment anymore? I don't mind the inspection but you have to put things back as they were. You're not a teenager.

MOST RECENT

Following a successful trial run at ten U.S. airports and rollout at worldwide airports with U.S. bound flights, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced it will expand the enhanced security screening program to other domestic airports.

I've been working on an algorithm that can read intent from your body movement, your walk, your face, and the way you interact with the public. Basically it's all the tools our brave trained agents use in the field. It is also good for everyday people cause it didn't just ignore the "false positive" meaning it alerts that even though a person is not a treat to others they may be to themselves, or about to have a hart attack. We're calling it "ThenNowAffter (TNA)", the DNA of TDA:-) #tsa #transportationsecurityadministration #airportsecurity #technologyconsulting

#Florida Airport to Prohibit Traveling with Legal #MedicalMarijuana
#ORANGECOUNTY, FL (#WFTV) - A draft policy published this week by the #GreaterOrlandoAviationAuthority would put medical marijuana users at risk of arrest when flying out of #OrlandoInternationalAirport, despite 71 percent of Florida voters choosing to #legalize #weed for medical uses last November.

The #GOAA board is set to vote on that policy Wednesday afternoon.

The draft policy seeks “to clarify that, despite the Florida constitutional amendment legalizing the use of Marijuana for medical purposes and the decriminalization of the possession of small amounts of #Marijuana by the City of #Orlando, Marijuana is prohibited from being brought onto #Airport Property.” It goes on to say marijuana, including items for medical use, will be confiscated going forward. And that “any person violating this provision will be detained or arrested by a Law Enforcement Officer.” Among #OIA’s 42 million visitors each year, the #TransportationSecurityAdministration doesn’t actively search for marijuana, a representative told #EyewitnessNews on Tuesday. But she said if agents find it, they’ll notify local law enforcement, who would then be acting under GOAA’s policies.

The draft proposal seeks to ban all forms of marijuana and its extracts, including items like the low-THC, high #CBD medical  #cannabis Bruce Grossman relies on to fight chronic pain. He said he can’t imagine going on a trip without the medical marijuana. “I would be in pain. Very simple,” Grossman said.

A GOAA spokesperson told Eyewitness News the authority’s legal team had determined federal funding received by the airport could be rescinded if the OIA began tolerating marijuana on site.

Though local laws and ordinances have legalized and decriminalized the drug in various capacities, federal law considers marijuana a Scheduled I narcotic. It contains no exceptions for alternative formulations or medical usage. "I think it's only a matter of time until things change,” Grossman said.

my #checkinluggage got #inspected #likewhoah out of vegas to nyc by the #motherfuckingTSA . #TSA wrecked my perfect pack job, oh well. #getout #getoutmovie #itsofficial , #transportationsecurityadministration just couldnt believe the xray of what was inside was really what was inside. 🤔 #lilrelhowery @comedianlilrel 🏆🏆🏆

A universal “comprehensive” search may prompt passenger complaints to #lawenforcement.

The U.S. #TransportationSecurityAdministration has declined to say exactly where—and how—employees will be touching air travelers as part of the more invasive physical pat-down procedure it recently ordered.

But the agency does expect some passengers to consider the examination unusual. In fact, the TSA decided to inform local police in case anyone calls to report an “abnormal” federal frisking, according to a memo from an airport trade association obtained by Bloomberg News. The physical search, for those selected to have one, is what the agency described as a more “comprehensive” screening, replacing five separate kinds of pat-downs it previously used.

The decision to alert local and airport police raises a question of just how #intimate the agency’s employees may get. On its website, the #TSA says employees “use the back of the hands for pat-downs over sensitive areas of the body. In limited cases, additional screening involving a sensitive area pat-down with the front of the hand may be needed to determine that a threat does not exist.” Now security screeners will use the front of their hands on a passenger in a private screening area if one of the prior screening methods indicates the presence of explosives, according to a “security notice” that the Airports Council International-#NorthAmerica (ACI-NA) sent its U.S. members following a March 1 conference call with TSA officials. “Due to this change, TSA asked FSDs [field security directors] to contact airport law enforcement and brief them on the procedures in case they are notified that a passenger believes a [TSA employee] has subjected them to an abnormal screening practice,” ACI wrote. ✋🏾More in comments👇🏾#PoliceState
