Behavior Detection Officers (BDO)
Airline passengers must think twice before they speak. TSA announced a trial of the expanded behavior-detection security program. Boston Logan International Airport was the first airport in the country to start the enhanced screening method. In this program, TSA officers speak with every passenger passing through the security checkpoint, asking each two or three questions, such as Where are you traveling today? or How long have you been in town? The purpose of the program is to detect suspicious behavior. TSA has clarified that rowdy behavior, inappropriate jokes, and threats will not be tolerated.
