TSA and Liberia Civil Aviation Authority partner to enhance security

31-Aug-2010 9:01 AM

US Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Liberia Civil Aviation Authority (LCAA) announced (30-Aug-2010) the successful implementation of cooperative efforts to enhance aviation security. Flights between the US and Liberia could begin as early as northern autumn 2010. TSA has worked closely with LCAA to implement the necessary security protocols for sustainable aviation security institutions and practices, and to ensure the safety of passengers traveling between the two countries. To support this partnership, TSA deployed an Aviation Security Sustainable International Standards Team (ASSIST), a group of veteran security experts, to collaborate with Liberian aviation security officials. The ASSIST group and their LCAA counterparts assessed aviation security programs such as training and equipment as well as current aviation security laws and regulations. [more]
