This is Little Bear (@imlittlebear) receiving her TSA Junior Officer Badge sticker at the Nashville International Airport (BNA)! She’s travelled through 15 states so far via air travel, so it’s about time TSA rewarded this good girl. She picks out her own outfits and likes to be weighed on the baggage scales when she travels!

Several travelers were arrested by police on Thursday after TSA Officers detected a suspicious item in a carry-on bag at the Newark Airport (EWR). The travelers attempted to intentionally sneak an item which had all the makings of an improvised explosive device through the checkpoint and film it for a TV show. #Nope

These types of items can lead to costly evacuations, delays, and missed flights while explosives professionals determine whether the item is real or not. As noted above, they can also lead to you being arrested.

This firearm would go swimmingly with a vintage kitchen appliance, but it’s not a good idea to take it on a plane. It was discovered in a carry-on bag at the McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS).

While firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags, you can pack them in your checked baggage as long as you meet the packing guidelines found at TSA.gov.

As a refresher, carry-on bags go into the cabin of the plane with you. Checked bags go into the cargo hold of the plane where passengers have no access.

When firearms are discovered at the checkpoint, we contact law enforcement and they decide what happens based on background checks, interviews and local laws.

A firearm at the checkpoint could lead to fines, arrests, missed flights or all of the above. As far as what happens to confiscated firearms, that's up to each local police department.

Yes, you can bring it along with your carry-on property, but you have to raise it over your head and play Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” like John Cusack did in “Say Anything.” Seriously though, you’ll need to run it through the X-ray separately so our officers can get a better look at it. Once it’s cleared, you’re good to go. Also, depending on how large it is, you might want to contact your airline to see if it’ll fit in the overhead.

This is a screenshot of a tweet sent to the AskTSA account on Twitter. Have you ever wondered whether or not you can pack a certain item? Fret no more! Now you can simply snap a picture and tweet it to AskTSA or send it via Facebook Messenger and our team will get back to you promptly with an answer.

If you're a regular follower of this account, I'm sure you can think of many situations where it would have behooved somebody to send us a picture first. And that's not all. Contact us about any TSA related issue or question you might have. We can even help you if you don’t see TSA Pre✓® on your boarding pass.

We look forward to answering your questions, 8am-10pm ET weekdays; 9am-7pm weekends/holidays. #AskTSA #TSATravelTips

This is what TSA Canine life is like after retirement. The slumbering shepherd in the pic is Zorro. Zorro worked with canine handler Chris Morrison during the initial canine rollout at Boston Logan (BOS) in 2008. See him in action in the upper left corner of the pic atop several boxes of live #lobstahs

In addition to their daily work with TSA, Zorro and Chris worked the G20 Summit in Pittsburgh and President Obama’s vacations at the Vineyard for 3-years. Zorro is now 11 and enjoying his retirement. Good boy, Zorro! Ok, good boy to you too, Chris the handler, for adopting Zorro after his retirement.

An Erie International Airport (ERI) TSA Officer let the cat out of the bag this week. Literally. And the cat’s name is Slim. Slim’s owners packed her in their checked bag. While this could have been extremely dangerous for the 6-month old cat, Slim is just fine and is currently residing under the care of the Humane Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania.

No worries though if you’d like to travel with your pets. Here’s how!

Checkpoint Screening:

Check with your airline first to inquire about any fees and policies.

Your pet will need to be screened via checkpoint screening if it’s traveling with you in the cabin of the plane.

We do not X-ray pets. However, there have been many occasions where passengers have assumed their pet needed to go through the X-ray. You can imagine the surprise of the X-ray operator when they see Fluffy’s skeleton roll across their monitor. It is not an unusual occurrence. Your pet will need to come out of its carrier, so it is a good idea to know how your pet will react. Many a cat has gone into a feline frenzy after being removed from its carrier. An angry cat is never a good thing.

Even if your travel is “off the leash,” you should strongly consider keeping your pet on a leash. The checkpoint is a noisy environment that can cause your pet to flee at its first opportunity. This happens with humans occasionally as well. Your pet can be carried through the walk through metal detector or walked through on leash. If your pet triggers an alarm, one of our officers will have to take a closer look. Pets are not screened with the body scanners.

Checked Baggage:

If your pet is traveling in a kennel, your airline will arrange for a TSA Officer to screen the kennel. Officers will need to inspect your kennel/carrier for prohibited items with you present. Sometimes this can be done visually, but it’s good to have a leash handy in case the officer asks you to remove your pet from the carrier.

TSA officers discovered 58 firearms last week in carry-on bags around the nation. Of the 58 firearms discovered, 52 were loaded and 16 had a round chambered.

While firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags, you can pack them in your checked baggage as long as you meet the packing guidelines at TSA.gov

As a refresher, carry-on bags go into the cabin of the plane with you. Checked bags go into the cargo hold of the plane where passengers have no access.

When firearms are discovered at the checkpoint, we contact law enforcement and they decide what happens based on background checks, interviews and local laws.

This looks like something out of a Mad Max movie. It’s as if Mad Max wanted to paint the Thunderdome with the blood of his enemies. It’s a paint roller wrapped in sandpaper and wire with nails protruding. This was discovered earlier in 2017 in a carry-on bag at Chicago O’Hare (ORD), but I just acquired a picture of it today.

Hektor says it’s a doggone shame that the holidays are over. Don’t sweat it, Heki. They’ll be here again before you know it. Hektor is an explosives detection canine at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
