“This is a great opportunity to learn more about the critical role TSA transportation security officers play at our nation’s airports and to get started on a rewarding career path,” said Colorado TSA Federal Security Director Larry Nau. “We encourage those who are interested in working on the front lines of transportation security in the federal government to come out this Saturday, including high school graduates and veterans.”
