TSA trains Boston Logan screeners in behaviourial detection
US’ Transportation Security Administration will begin training screeners at Boston Logan International Airport to assess passenger behaviour (AP, 01-Aug-2011). Under the new programme, behavioural officers will ask passengers questions and study their responses. Those who exhibit “suspicious” behaviour, such as avoiding eye contact or struggling to answer, will be taken aside for additional screening. Sixty TSA staff are scheduled to take part in the training.
