TSA Freezes Private Screener Program

Assessment of the Scientific Information for the Radiation Exposure Screening and Education Program
Jan 31, 2011 — Last Friday TSA Administrator John Pistole announced he has decided not to expand a program that allows airports to use private security contractors in place of TSA airport screeners. Pistole said, "I examined the contractor screening program and decided not to expand the program beyond the current 16 airports as I do not see any clear or substantial advantage to do so at this time."
