Increased security screening of employees to be implemented in the US.


The federal Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced that, as part of a 90 day test programme, security is to be increased amongst workers at seven airports throughout the US from May.

According to The Associated Press, the screening tests will be conducted at airports in Boston, Denver, Kansas City, Jacksonville, Fla., New Bern, N.C., Eugene and North Bend, Oregon.

Measures that will be implemented as part of the programme include workers and vehicles at Logan International Airport in Boston being screened at the airport's perimeter; whilst at Jacksonville International Airport and Craven Regional Airport in North Carolina physical screening will occur on all employees in public and secure areas on a daily basis.

Exact screening procedures will reportedly be different at each airport.
