Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) Reimbursement

Office of Law Enforcement/Federal Air Marshal Service (OLE/FAMS)

State and local law enforcement agencies play a critical role in security at airports throughout the nation.  They are the primary law enforcement authorities to respond to any incident within the airport perimeter including TSA security checkpoints.

The LEO Reimbursement Program (RP) was established to provide partial reimbursement to airport operators in the wake of the new LEO requirements mandated by the Aviation Transportation Security Act (ATSA).

The LEO RP strives to continue maximizing the mutual benefits of the program through consolidated efforts with our airport stakeholders, industry partners, and TSA stakeholders to fulfill our common goal of ensuring the safety of the traveling public.
