USA: 4WWL Investigative Report on Baggage Handler Theft of Firearms and Valuables in US Aviation System.
An investigative report into baggage handling theft in the USA has revealed ineffective investigation into widespread crime. The investigative report notes that Air travel consumer advocates agree, and the president of the National Association of Airline Passengers said the lack of investigation of thefts from checked baggage magnifies that safety risk instead of dampening it, because if people can easily take things out of checked bags, they could very likely put things in them. The report notes a lack of transparency about crime, noting that the majority of incidents are not recorded in police reports and airlines that were approached for information did not disclose any statistics.
