Within a space of three days, there were three airport security breaches reported, causing fear and consternation among airline passengers. On three separate occasions, passengers were either inadequately screened or not screened at all, prompting concern from other passengers. Proper security training seems to be at issue according to Security USA's David Boehm.
In the current environment filled with fear of terrorist attacks, thorough screening at the airport has come to be expected. While many complain of the inconvenience, most agree that increased airport security is necessary considering how disastrous an airline security breach could be. Recently, there have been several instances of people either being inadequately screened by security guards at airports or even worse, not being screened at all. In at least one instance, a person had been pulled out of the line for a more thorough search and they walked away without being screened at all.
Not only are these lapses dangerous, but they raise the ire of passengers who are not a threat and are subjected to extensive screening. Consistent security screening procedures help to improve compliance among all passengers, resulting in smoother check-ins and greater safety for all involved.
When interviewed on the subject by CBS 2 News, David Boehm, COO of Security USA, Inc. cited inadequate screening and training of guards as the most likely explanation of these dangerous breaches. Security guards need to be thoroughly screened prior to being hired for integrity and reliability. The management of Security USATM knows that proper security guard training is crucial in order to avoid lapses in procedure which lead to security breaches like those allowed by TSA agents at airports recently.
