TSA head wants ‘risk based,’ tailor-made airport screening – The Hill

The head of the TSA wants to implement a new “risk-based” screening method over the next year that will tailor-fit airport security procedures to individuals based on intelligence and suspicious behavior.

John Pistole, the administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), told lawmakers about the new screening tactics at a hearing Thursday before the House Homeland Security’s subcommittee on Transportation Security.
