As a result of the many airport terrorist attacks, there’s been an increase in intensity of the security measures making it inconvenient and invasive for travelers. Through the years it’s been widely known that airport security can be of inconvenience. The Transportation Security Administration was put into effect after the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 and has added mandatory procedures such as removing shoes and restricting carry-on items. “On March 2 , the TSA quietly introduced a new pat-down procedure that consolidates the agency’s five protocol for passenger searches into one standardized method” (Elliott). These new procedures could make travelers uncomfortable as well as feel like their privacy has been invaded.
As specialist have mentioned that baggage is where the greatest danger and where the airport security resources should focus as for current situation are bombs and explosives. All the luggage going on passenger planes should be treated the same and scanned. The staffs who are
Drones are the future of technology around the world. Drones are made to be sneaky and are made to help the future of technology and are made to help track down people and help get criminals and also shoot them. The debate between drones is that the US and many other countries around the world are starting to allow drones to enter the country's airspace and there are benefits about that rule and there are also downfalls. A lot of American citizens are really concerned about this rule and believe that drones should be tested in a specific area before being sent out into US airspace which is thousands of miles wide and long. This is the debate that many people want to end.
The right to privacy is not only a human right but an element to various legal traditions which may restrain both government and private party action that threaten the privacy of an individual The fourth, fifth and the ninth amendment protect our right to privacy. Today our privacy is being threaten due to the growing issues that threaten our national security. With growing amount of terrorist attacks, bombings, school shooting, and other massive shootings it definitely seems to warrant the loss of privacy. However, how far is too far and who decides? Who enforces the laws to make sure our rights are upheld and who decides?
Additionally, laws could be passed at the state level requiring cameras in all high occupancy government buildings or any business with a high occupancy of visitors such as theme park. Another security measures that should be taken to prevent mass shootings is designing buildings to make it much more difficult for potential shooters to commit a shooting. According to Architectural Digest, “these shootings always entail the gross misuse of firearms, but they also tend to involve an unexpected breach of a building—a movie theater, hotel, or school—so architects, too, are looking for ways to render buildings and landscapes better able to ward off, or at least mitigate the effects of, the threats
After September 11, many existing security measures were changed and improved upon. For example, the Transportation Security Administration worked with the Federal Aviation Administration to fortify cockpit doors on all commercial aircrafts in order to protect the cockpit and its pilots from unauthorized entry and dangerous objects or weapons (“Transportation Security Timeline”). This helps avoid potential terrorist attacks because it prevents hijackers from entering the cockpit and taking over the plane. Another improvement made to airport security is the Aviation and Transportation Security Act. The act was made into law requiring all passengers to take part in screenings by federal officials, one hundred percent of checked baggage screenings, and the growth of the Federal Air Marshal Service (“Transportation Security Timeline”).
Introduction Right from the beginning of the civil aviation, the aviation industry has dealt with multiple risks, threats, and challenges. Particularly from the 1970s, terrorism has been an on-going problem, posing tremendous threats to the global aviation industry through hijackings, shootings, and bomb attacks (Thomas, 2008). The Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), which came into law after the September 11, 2001 attacks, allowed significant changes in the civil aviation security policies and established the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to successfully execute 100% security screening on all checked baggage by 2010 to further strengthen the airport and cargo security (Elias, 2010). Despite constant efforts by various governments to
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) a sector of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plays a very important part of the aviation industry. The TSA regulates air transportation and set compliance guidelines and enforce regulations to ensure the safety of the traveling public and products across the United States and its territories throughout the world. Therefore, the TSA is responsible for detecting and preventing weapons and hazard material from being carried on an aircraft by performing security procedures. The Transportation Security Administration was created after 9/11 one of the worst terror attack to occur within the United States. The attack created a sense of panic across the United States of America, and throughout
◦ Terrorisms regulations After the main bombing in 2001, global airlines companies now need to have strict bombing and security regulations. The industry now have to ensure a high level of security. ◦ Taxes The industry is set in a highly taxing government. The
The airports are also one of the most preferred target locations for the terrorist outfits which seek to spread terror in society. In spite of the tight security in and around the airport facilities, airports are by their inherent nature open to the public. The sheer volume of passengers, vendors, airport staff and workers, and delivery personnel that transit the luggage making airports a typical major destination airport is staggering. The need of ensuring authorized access to the highly secured areas is becoming one of the greatest challenges because of the filtering such a large volume of people at a plethora of entry
