TSA agents union pushes for creation of supplemental force
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The TSA agents union says a new supplemental TSA force with greater authority needs to be created.
This 'new class' of TSA officers would work among regular TSA employees, but would be armed and able to make arrests.
The announcement comes just days after one TSA agent was killed and two others injured at Los Angeles International Airport.
The goal is to create a larger, and more consistent TSA presence in screening areas.
