U.S. agency wants armed police at airport checkpoints, counters

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/27/2014 - 04:18
By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Transportation Security Administration recommended on Wednesday that armed law enforcement officers be posted at airport checkpoints and ticket counters during peak hours. An agency review, prompted by a deadly Los Angeles airport shooting incident last fall, called for setting standards in airports that allow officers at checkpoints and ticket counters to roam rather than hold set positions. The review by the Transportation Security Administration, a unit of the Department of Homeland Security, in part called for increased training and exercises to deal with shooting incidents. The agency also has increased the visibility of uniformed police officers around airport security checkpoints, boosted grief counseling for employees, and shifted specialized security teams to airports, the review said.
