  • Just my two cents...I whole-heartedly agree that badges that say "officer" coupled with DHS are not needed for TSA screeners. But to answer the above poster, the difference between say Wackenhut security and TSA screeners, is the fact that Wackenhut, as contracted by the Dep't of Energy (for example), is provided law enforcement authority through the Atomic Energy Act. In addition, many are also given state deputization/authority while acting on DOE property in that state. Therefore, Wackenhut security agents can, and somtimes do, have LEO status (albeit very limited). I truly don't think the issue here has to do with LEO's feeling like their "authority" is getting belittled. It has much more to do with the fact that by simply inscribing the words, "Transportation Security Agency," and "Screener," instead of "Officer," and "DHS," many of the aforementioned problems would be remedied.

    • I agree.....with your version...to make it eaiser they should leave everything the same and just replace officer with something else like....lets call it baggage checker!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL

      But I am looking at the whole picture....give em the darn badges and wait for the ones who are gonna do it to screw it up, then they will be arrested and lose their job. In my mind those are the ones who should have never got the job in the first place.

        What's that.....?

          You obviously do not work with the public. A person is intelligent. People are stupid.

          I worked security prior to becoming a CO. You would not believe the number of times I had some people state to me that "I pay your salary." And this was in NY, where we have square badges. I was not armed. People see a uniform and badge and automatically assume authority. Which is its intended purpose!

          I am sure someone will pull it, but i am also certian the majority won't. It is not professional i know, but neither is flashing your LE badge to avoid paying a cover charge at a bar like plenty of my LE buddies do, that is tacky.
          Completely agreed that it's tacky. However, they EARNED their shield, and the authority it represents. If they're willing to merc themselves out as security (cause the bar owner WILL be willing to put them to use), that's their and their dept's problem.

          How about we NOT put other people's lives and safety in jeopardy for some asinine stunt?

              Of course....you've got 20 some posts......and they are all defending an Agency that you claim you don't work for.......

              Out of the 1000 or so posts I have....I am sure there is a mistake or two when it comes to typing........big deal......

              So....why are you here arguing about Screeners needing badges and new uniforms.....since you claim you don't work at BWI for them.....?

              Go back to your hole....as your trolling.....

                Yes, and your point is? I see nothing wrong with their badge and uniform and you do. Do you work for them?

                  Because it makes you look like either a liar or a fool..... A liar for actually being a screener and lying about your occupation......or a fool for defending the decision to spend a ton of money on things that are not needed.....when others on here have agreed that it's a freaking waste of taxpayers money....

                  • I started this thread to see what LEO's thought about our new uniforms and badges. I can understand LEO's fears that TSO will be using their badge incorrectly. And I can understand the members who see Bad TSO and think we are all like that. To those members, you are wrong, we deal with adminstrations at best is indifferent to us. And you wonder why we act the way we do. We are forced to recert for our jobs every quarter, and we don't get raises or bonuses. we come to work and are demeaned, degraded and verbally abused and all we can do is call for a supervisor.
                    So you LEO's don't like us or respect us, GET OVER IT, Because we do you wont do for alot less than you would

                    Thank you,
                    Tsapalmsprings,
                    P.S. Anybody has issue with what i said, don't hesitate to PM and We can discuss it

                      You are obviously someone who thinks he is always right and gets offended when disagreed with, you don't work for TSA and your against new uniforms and badges and I don't work for TSA and think there is nothing wrong with new uniforms and badges. A waste of money is a very poor argument seeing how the gov wastes money. Now you resort to name calling? Calling me a fool for disagreeing with you? and a liar because I'm a PI?
                      I truly feel sorry for your co-workers.
                      Oh, I forgot the baby put me on ignore.
