Federal law enforcement officers back TSA screening
The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association has weighed in on the controversy over air travel security, saying it supports the controversial body imaging and thorough pat-downs the Transportation Security Administration uses to screen airline passengers.
"The proper use of advanced imaging technology should significantly reduce the risk of terrorists bypassing checkpoints with weapons and explosive devices," said Jon Adler, the organization's president.
A statement from the organization also said it supports a zero tolerance policy for any proven employee misconduct during the use of the imaging machines and enhanced pat-downs. "FLEOA remains committed to balancing a strong consideration of privacy and civil liberties with the security needs of our present threat environment," the statement said.
