TSA 2014 Year in Review

Friday, January 23, 2015
Infographic related to statistics stated in blog post.

Every day, transportation security officers interact with nearly two million travelers across the United States with a single goal in mind – ensuring the safety and security of the traveling public.

We want to share with you examples of the continued vigilance of TSA officers in protecting our nation’s transportation systems, including some of the most unusual items discovered at checkpoints.

TSA had a busy year in 2014, screening more than 653 million passengers in 2014 (about 1.8 million per day), which is 14.8 million more passengers than last year.

2,212 firearms were discovered in carry-on bags at checkpoints across the country, averaging more than sixfirearms per day. Of those, 1,835 (83 percent) were loaded. Firearms were intercepted at a total of 224 airports; 19 more airports than last year.

There was a 22 percent increase in firearm discoveries from last year’s total of 1,813.

These are just some of the 2,212 firearms discovered in carry-on bags in 2014.

Top 10 Airports for Gun Catches in 2014

  1. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW): 120
  2. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL): 109
  3. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX): 78
  4. George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH): 77
  5. Denver International Airport (DEN): 70

Here are a few of the more notable firearm incidents:

A record number of firearms discovered in one day was set on June 4, 2014, when 18 firearms were discovered around the country in carry-on bags. That broke the previous record of 13 set in 2013.

A disassembled .22 caliber firearm was discovered in a carry-on bag at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Various components of the gun were found hidden inside a PlayStation 2 console.

In addition to firearms discovered this year, there were many unsafe items that passengers attempted to travel with this year including:

An Mk 2 hand grenade was discovered in a carry-on bag at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The Terminal 1 checkpoint was closed while the explosive ordnance disposal team transported the grenade to an offsite location to be disrupted. Five flights were delayed more than two hours, affecting 800 passengers.

Officers also find inert items that appear very realistic. The problem with these types of items is that we don’t know if they are real, toys or replicas until TSA explosives experts are called upon. Inert items can lead to disruption, closed terminals and checkpoints, which often result in canceled or delayed flights. Here are some of the more interesting inert items found last year:

Six blocks of inert C-4 were discovered in a checked bag at Tampa (TPA).

There were many instances last year when travelers attempted to hide items, or the items they packed were disguised to look like other items. TSA officers regularly find sword canes, credit card knives, belt buckle knives, comb/brush knives, knives hidden in shoes, knives hidden in thermoses and knives hidden under the bag lining near the handle mechanism. Here are a few instances that stood out:

An anomaly was detected with advanced imaging technology in the center chest area of a Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) passenger. After a pat-down, a pen and highlighter combo was discovered to be concealing small knives.

Kennedy International Airport (JFK) opened a checked bag for a routine inspection, they discovered many household items, like baby wipes, coffee, lemonade mix and a box of cat litter. After a closer look, they found two disassembled .40 caliber handguns, 350 rounds of ammunition, and 58 bricks of marijuana (33 pounds) concealed in the products. The traveler was arrested on state charges by the Port Authority Police Department.

How do you know what the guns, grenades etc that was caught was not intended to be an act of terrorism? You don't but the fact they were caught gives a sense of peace that I won't be on the plane with these people and their weapons. Your comments is ridiculous because why would anyone want to bring these things on an aircraft in the first place?

The TSA's year in review should include how TSA employees, all the way up to former Admin Pistole ignored the Office of Inspector General for months in its "Audit of Security Controls for DHS Information Systems at John F. Kennedy International Airport".

http://www.oig.dhs.gov/assets/Mgmt/2015/OIG_15-18_Jan14.pdf

John Roth, the Inspector General, says, in part, in his opening letter,

"- We provided a draft of this report on July 22, 2014 to the Chief Information Officer for review. Pursuant to Department of Homeland Security Directive 077-01, Follow-up, and Resolution for Office of Inspector General Report Recommendations, we asked for agency comments, including a sensitivity review, within 30 days of receipt of the draft. This would have made the report due on or about August 22, 2014. Almost a week later, on August 27, 2014, the DHS Chief of Staff requested an extension to provide a response and technical comments. I granted the extension until September 17, 2014.

- On October 20, 2014, nearly 60 days after the original due date for agency comments, the Departmental GAO-OIG Liaison Office finally conveyed to us TSA's response to our request for a
sensitivity review by marking several passages in the report as SSI. I disagree with this determination.

- On November 19, 2014, I sent a formal challenge memo to TSA Administrator John Pistole expressing my disagreement. Administrator Pistole had authority over all TSA programs and operations, including oversight of the SSI programs, and is my counterpart in DHS' leadership.

- Having received no reply, on December 16, 2014, I wrote to Administrator Pistole a second time, noting that this report had languished as a result of TSA's sensitivity review, and again requesting that he remove the SSI deletions from the report. As with the November 19, 2014 letter, I received no reply.

- Finally, on January 13, 2015, over five months after submitting the report for sensitivity review, and two months after writing to Administrator Pistole, I received a decision, not from the Acting TSA Administrator, but from the head of the SSI program office - the very same office that initially and improperly marked the information as SSI. Not surprisingly, the office affirmed its original
redaction to the report."

Not a very good 2014 for the TSA if they can't even review one report in five months.

I would guess that most, a very high percentage, of the guns confiscated were those that conceal carry. It's not hard to "forget" about your carry gun when it's on your hip at all times.

I don't think this makes it acceptable that they forgot to remove it before going to the airport... but I understand it. Especially with the explosion of concealed carry permits being issued these days.

"How do you know what the guns, grenades etc that was caught was not intended to be an act of terrorism?"

TSA has a failure rate of ~70%. That means considerably more flew than were caught. Ergo, if anyone were targeting commercial aviation, then an act of terrorism would have occurred by now. The fact that one hasn't proves the point.

all those guns, and not a single one had anything to do with terrorism, and not a single one was a legitimate threat to aviation security. what a waste of tax dollars and time.

The absolute rediculousness of some of these comments amazes me. How do you know there was no threat? When questioned, a POTENTAIL terrorist doesnt say, oh, by the way, Im a terrorist. Also keep in mind, TSA does not look for terrorists. They look for threat iteams. Their job is to keep threat iteams off of planes. Nowhere does it say they are looking for terrorists.
That said, iteams dont have to be "live" to be a threat. What happens if somoeone pulls a fake grenade or that bomb looking alarm clock out of his bag at 30,000 feet? Pandimonium is the answer. Some of you people are so in the dark as to the threats facing this country and what is going on to prevent it. Had the 9/11 highjackers had their box cutters taken by TSA, nobody would have ever known they exsisted and you fools would be questioning why they took a box cutter from a person who was not a threat. of the thousands of iteams taken, if only one was taken from a terrorist, thousands of lives would have been saved by TSA. If only one threat iteam was not taken on board because TSA was a detourant, thousands of lives may have been saved.
You whinners can cry all you want and post usless and usless garbage about things not being a threat. Fact is, you know not of which you speak. I prefer to think that perhaps, TSA has prevent thousands of un needed deaths.
Thanks TSA for all you do and for putting up with the publics needless beat-down.

January 27, 2015 at 10:13 AM
---------------------------------
I know because for every item found, at least 2 others made it through, according to TSA's own testing stats. you can prefer to think whatever you wish, it is a putatively free country, but that doesn't make it so. there were more than enough prohibited items on planes on which you have flown to enable a terrorist act. none have occurred. thus, this is an artificially enlarged threat. thanks to TSA for nothing but wasting our time and tax dollars without protecting us in any signficant way.

It isn't like we've researched the subject at all.

It isn't like we've watched the actions of the TSA for years.

It isn't like we requested information and transparency for years, all to be ignored.

It isn't like we know our rights.

So, please, provide some proof that you're a "Retired Airline Pilot" and give us some verifiable facts and information.

I cant believe I didnt know this blog existed. I've always wondered how many items are found trying to go through security.I have to say, the US is pretty great in regards to making information like this public (just like they do the sex offender registry). Here's hoping Canada will be a little more open to publishing this type of thing too. THANK YOU!

Submitted by Wagner on

Lindsay, this blotter display is inaccurate at best and deceptive at worst.

7 weapons get through TSA screening areas for every 3 three find.

This blotter never covers the millions of non-dangerous items confiscated by screeners every year.

This blotter does not cover but a fraction of a percent of the abuses and wrongdoings by TSA employees.

This blotter team does not respond to questions posed by US citizens and deletes comments that meet blotter policy.

This blotter is a weak propaganda scheme that has failed since its inception.

So, what's the deal with the cannon? Are unloaded cannons allowed in checked baggage? I don't see how they could possibly be a threat (it's just a hunk of metal), although I could see how it might be hard to tell whether there is any explosive powder inside.

Submitted by Anonymous on

you don't seem to know what would happen if a gun was fired in an airplane so I'm about to get all science on you.the difference in cabin pressure in the outside of the plane at 30,000 feet is 8 psi a small hole placed in the plane from a gunshot would not be sufficient enough to cause explosive decompression. and the hole could be plugged up with anything that can survive 8 pounds of pressure. There for seriously no threat

Since 2006, the number of guns discovered by the TSA has increased more than threefold. Assuming that the number of people carrying guns has not changed substantially, then that should correspond to a huge decrease in gun violence aboard aircraft. How many gun-related incidents have there been aboard US aircraft in the last ten years? I can't find any. Maybe the TSA could provide those numbers? If in fact the risk of gun violence has been reduced to zero from zero, I don't see the value in increased security measures.

Having worked along side the TSA , I can only commend them on their professionalism. Dealing with the (ignorant, uninformed, rude, pushy, egotistical, demanding, I could go on) general public as they do every day, they show patience that is beyond belief. People who knock TSA just are not aware of the world around them. Keep up the good work TSA, there are people who are glad You are here and appreciate you.

I like to do year end reviews of lore we've seen in the past year, but this year's review is going to be a little odd.

Submitted by Holly B on

I believe that the security in airports should continue to the be strict and over cautious. You just never know who might be carrying a bomb or illegal substances. Although I do believe this article uses the Conjunction fallacy because which of the two events is more likely to happen within the next year at an airport:
1. A person tries to bring a bomb on a plane
2. a person tried to bring a bomb and a plane and ends up overtaking the whole plane and crashing it into the white house causing another terrorist attack, like 9/11. The probability of a conjunction is never greater than the probability of its conjuncts. In other words, the probability of two things being true can never be greater than the probability of one of them being true, since in order for both to be true, each must be true. However, when people are asked to compare the probabilities of a conjunction and one of its conjuncts, they sometimes judge that the conjunction is more likely than one of its conjuncts. This seems to happen when the conjunction suggests a scenario that is more easily imagined than the conjunct alone. This article implies a lot of that type of thing but overall I agree with everything and think the United States is doing a great job on keeping our country safe and out of harms way.

Maybe you'd find more contraband if you didn't allow everyone, their dog and monkey thought TSA Pre-Check. So glad I paid for the privilege. Literally no one in the general lanes this morning at SEA. 50+ in another lane. I'll let you guess which.

Submitted by Dussel on

it would be interesting to know how passengers were counted: according to the department of transportation's bureau of statistics (http://www.transtats.bts.gov/Data_Elements.aspx?Data=1), there were 663M domestic and 187M international passengers in 2014 - the number quoted on this blog (653M screened passengers) doesn't seem to match those from the DoT. How come? Also: it would be interesting to see a break-down of the prohibited items found by domestic vs. international travel: a very crude comparison, by reading off the number of guns found by year from this (TSA) blog, and the corresponding passenger counts from the DoT website, summarized by year, show no correlation between guns found each year and domestic passenger count, but a correlation of 97% in guns found in a given year, and the number of international passengers. Not suggesting causation of any kind, likely just a confounding factor, but curious non the less. Mostly about how the numbers between the two sites are so far, though.

It is hard to believe the mindset of people who carry these items much less attempt to board aircraft with them. They're dangerous. I am so thankful for the TSA's vigilance.

Submitted by Myra Timas on

How are we molesting people? Are you mad, if you would read your history on attacks that were attempted to be made to aviation, you would see why we do the things we do. It is not for fun or any stupid reason to be able to touch passengers, it is to make sure that they aren't hiding any explosives, weapons, or any prohibited items on their person.

I'd still like TSA to respond and tell me what the problem was with the pills in the book. Are we not allowed to carry on medications & over-the-counter remedies? I carry enough medications with me, usually in a carry on, for length of my trip.

If the problem is that the medications are not in each of their own Rx bottles, that would be a totally unrealistic policy. I have some serious medical conditions requiring a number of medications plus I choose to take calcium, vitamins, etc. I'd have to pack a shoe box full of bottles.

Hello, depending on how thick your book was makes the picture look funny and dark on the xray and with having pills in the boom might have given the operator a sense of urgency to check it out and make sure that it was not anything that could bring down our planes.so quite frankly it iS not the fact that it wasn't in its own bottle we look at things differently on the xray.we taking security very seriously.I hope this helped you with your question.

Thousands of people certainly have no intention of shooting people with their guns. But maybe 1 in 1000 do. Trying to stop a hijacker with a gun would be very difficult. So the more guns the TSA prevents from getting on the plane, the better.
