SEATTLE -- Security at some of the nation's biggest airports could be
breached by a simple piece of clothing.
The Transportation Safety Administration isn't doing enough to track
down security badges and uniforms of former employees, according to a
A government watchdog group's report found dozens of examples of former
employees keeping their uniforms and security badges long after they've
left the job.
One officer had an active pass to secure areas 827 days after leaving
the TSA. In 73 cases, offices that monitor security passes weren't
notified when an employee quit. And the agency lost track of former
security officers' uniforms 82 times.
