This is Maggie. She's an explosives detection canine at the Washington Dulles Airport (IAD). Even though her job is pretty risky, she wasn't taking any chances with her eyes during the eclipse. #DogsOfInstagram #WorkingDogs #TSAOnTheJob #Eclipse2017

Happiness is a warm coffee cup gun… Tell your sister to get a grip (on her mug) and safely pack it in her checked bags.  Replicas of weapons or anything resembling a weapon are not allowed in the cabin of the aircraft.

I dug really deep to find a pun for this post, but I couldn’t come up with anything groundbreaking. This was unearthed in a travelers bag at Newark (EWR). Shovels must be packed in checked bags, dig?

Jurassic’n me what? Your dinosaur would have to be placed in the cargo hold because well, he’s a dinosaur… But also because he wouldn’t be able to raise his arms in the body scanner.

It occurred to me… if you’re traveling, it might as well be a long and strange trip. These are fine to be packed in your carry-on or checked bag.

We’d like to welcome new TSA Administrator David Pekoske! He was confirmed on August 3, 2017 by the U.S. Senate as TSA's seventh Administrator. Today is an exciting day for TSA as it marks Administrator Pekoske’s first official day on the job. Part of his first day was being ceremonially sworn in at TSA headquarters in Arlington, Virginia by Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke.
.
As TSA’s new Administrator, he now leads a workforce of approximately 60,000 employees, the security operations at nearly 450 airports throughout the United States, the Federal Air Marshal Service, and shared security for highways, railroads, ports, mass transit systems and pipelines.
.
Pekoske served as the 26th Vice Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard in 2009, commanding the Coast Guard Pacific Area and Coast Guard Defense Forces West, where he lead all Coast Guard operations in the Western Hemisphere. He is a recognized expert in crisis management, strategic planning, and port and maritime security defense.
.
We look forward to the years ahead with our new administrator!

These are fine to pack in your carry-on. I imagine not traveling with your “Nun” chucks would be a hard habit to break.

Akin to an unexpected proposal, this ring can also be shocking. This stun-ring was discovered in a traveler’s carry-on bag at the Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). Shocking devices are prohibited from being carried onto the aircraft. While permitted in checked bags, familiarize yourself with local laws to keep yourself from getting “charged.”

Meet Burke. He’s an explosives detection canine at the Kahului Airport (OGG) in Hawaii. When he’s not keeping our transportation systems safe, you can find him at the local comedy club working for scraps. He’s been known to get the crowd howling. Some have even gone so far as to say that his standup is off the leash. #DogsOfInstagram #TSAOnTheJob #WorkingDogs

TSA discovered a record 96 firearms over the last week in carry-on bags around the nation. The previous record of 89 firearms was set last month.  Of the 96 firearms discovered, 85 were loaded and 26 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: bit.ly/travelingwithfirearms
.
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.

I was thoroughly entertained the last time I asked our followers to #CaptionThis - So let's see what you've got this time!
