The news brief issued by the Department of Transportation (DOT) provides steps the President may wish to consider in his proposal for increased safety at US airports. The Rapid Response Team concluded that: passenger screening must be placed under control of a federal law enforcement agency; relevant law enforcement and intelligence information must be shared with aviation security; new technologies must be put in place; passenger screening and other security measures should be strengthened to ensure safety to air travelers; and establish a voluntary pre-screening program along with "smart" credentials to facilitate the processing of air travelers.
