Airport, airline workers protected under law criminalizing attacks

AAAE Security SmartBrief | Jan 16, 2017

Airport and airline workers are now protected under a 2001 law that set fines and up to 10 years in prison for anyone who assaults "a federal, airport, or air carrier employee who has security duties within the airport, interferes with the performance of the duties of the employee or lessens the ability of the employee to perform those duties." The law had previously been interpreted to apply only to Transportation Security Administration or law enforcement officers. USA Today (01/14)
