L.A. airport police chief agrees with TSA findings
March 27, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Airport Police Chief Patrick Gannon says he agrees with the recommendations in a Transportation Security Administration report to improve airport security after a deadly shooting last year.

Gannon says he has read the report issued Wednesday and airport law enforcement officials agree with recommendations including posting armed police at security checkpoints and ticket counters during peak hours.

The airport changed its policy months before the Nov. 1 shooting, allowing officers to roam terminals instead of remaining at checkpoints. Gannon has said he didn’t want to revisit stationing officers at checkpoints because it’s important to be flexible.

A gunman targeting TSA officers killed one and wounded three other people in the Nov. 1 shooting.

The 25-page report to Congress obtained by The Associated Press makes 14 recommendations after a review of security at nearly 450 airports nationwide.
