"The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. Today, it has roughly 60,000 employees working at about 450 airports. For years, news media outlets have reported on serious instances of misconduct by TSA employees across the country, ranging from assaulting passengers to participating in large-scale criminal conspiracies. Although TSA has taken some steps to address employee misconduct, sadly, these stories continue to be in the news and in the mind of the public. Given these seemingly continuous scandals, the House Homeland Security Committee conducted an investigation to review TSA's efforts to identify, adjudicate, and address misconduct."
