Handful Of Airports To Try Risk-Based Security Screening

ATLANTA (AP) - Select travelers going through four U.S. airports may find it easier getting through security if they volunteer more personal information to the government.
     

U.S. Transportation Security Administration head John Pistole says a pilot program starting Tuesday tests a new risk-based approach for screening passengers. The limited program will start at the major airports in Atlanta, Detroit, Dallas-Fort Worth and Miami.
     

Under the program, TSA officials will assess passengers who volunteer more information about themselves before a flight. Those passengers would be sent to security lanes for expedited screening.
     

Pistole says the new program has the potential to improve the experience of travelers while allowing his agency to focus on higher-risk and unknown passengers.
