USA: CNN reports US Airport Security Equipment Improperly Managed.
CNN reports that airport security equipment including x-ray equipment and explosives detection devices are being improperly managed at US airports. Maintenance is lacking and the US Department of Homeland Security cannot confirm that any particular device is in working order. An audit report by the Inspector General confirms the CNN report. The audit states TSA's lack of adequate oversight of maintenance for the equipment means the agency "cannot be assured that routine preventative maintenance is performed or that the equipment is repaired and ready for operational use." The report also raises concern that poorly maintained airport screening equipment could mean "the safety of airline passengers and aircraft could be jeopardized."
