TSA Doesn’t Control Airport Security Cameras – ABC News

The Transportation Security Administration is working to maintain the “sterility” of airport terminals after passengers clear screening checkpoints, but the agency currently lacks the ability to control or directly monitor security cameras owned by airlines and airports, ABC News has learned.

The revelation comes as the TSA begins an investigation into a security breach Sunday night that brought the busiest terminal at Newark Liberty International Airport to a halt for more than seven hours.

The breach occurred at approximately 5:20 p.m. Sunday, when a man was spotted walking the wrong way through an exit door leading to the airport’s Terminal C secure area.
