TSA conducting more invasive pat downs: What to expect if you fly
Mar 09, 2017, 00:36
The new technique, which the TSA began rolling out on Monday, is in response to weaknesses they claim they found in existing security screening protocols, and to reduce the "cognitive burden" on its agents, who previously had five separate pat-down options to choose from -four too many for them to handle, apparently. Others may be selected for pat-downs "as part of our unpredictable security measures", according to the TSA's statement.
Getting "more involved" with TSA agents isn't very high on most travelers' wish lists, but the TSA offers cold comfort by assuring us that the searches will be conducted by TSA officers of the same sex as the person being searched. And despite only one passenger we spoke with who was against it, the majority of people say if the new policy is necessary, they are on board. "You may be required to adjust clothing during the pat-down".
Travelers may still request a private screening accompanied by a companion. Now, there will be just one type of physical search to which the TSA has described it to be a lot more "comprehensive".
Pat-downs have always been part of the TSA's security screening process.
A TSA spokesman says they did meet with Cleveland Police as well as airport officials last week, before the new pat down police was put into place.

Retail outlets had displayed only Pepsi and Coke the past few weeks to clear the existing stocks. A majority of the colleges in Coimbatore have stopped sales of the drinks in their canteens.
The new guidelines posted on the TSA website are much more explicit about what passengers should expect: "A pat-down may include inspection of the head, neck, arms, torso, legs, and feet".
The TSA won't specify exactly what the new standard pat-down entails, but the agency did alert local police stations of the change in case passengers reported any abnormalities, Fox Denver reports.
The change is the result of the fact that TSA agents found a record number of firearms during routine screenings during the week of February 20: 79, more than four times the previous one-week record of 18.
I have personally already complained about the way TSA pats me down during screening.
"I went through the metal detector and it went off, they said it was a random electronic check, which I've never heard of before". First of all, don't touch my fucking hair. In the middle of an airport security check with everyone staring at you is the most uncomfortable.
