Napolitano says scanners may be used for trains, subways, and boats – Homeland Security Newswire

Brace yourselves: full-body body scanners may be coming to trains, subways, and boats, DHS secretary Janet Napolitano. “[Terrorists] are going to continue to probe the system and try to find a way through,” Napolitano said in an interview that aired on the Charlie Rose Show. She said as aviation security tightens, “we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime.”

Jordy Yager reports in the Hill that Napolitano’s comments were a response to a question about what terrorists would be thinking in the future. She did not elaborate on what enhanced security at train stations might look like, however.
