Federal officers to police airports 'Trusted-traveler' ID ca

Federal officers to police airports 'Trusted-traveler' ID card to be tested

Quote:
The federal government will hire thousands of armed law enforcement officers in coming years to patrol the nation's airports, the new undersecretary of Transportation told USA TODAY this week.

In an interview days before the Transportation Security Administration takes responsibility for aviation security Sunday, its leader John Magaw also said he was skeptical about a ''trusted-traveler'' ID card. But the administration will test the concept, possibly with members of Congress, he said.

Magaw said the new federal agents will work in tandem with police and other federal authorities currently at airports. He called their role ''hugely different'' than that of Federal Aviation Administration inspectors, who handle regulatory, not law enforcement, issues.
