What Does a Transportation Security Officer Do?

A transportation security officer is responsible for making sure that means of public transportation are secure. This can include checking cargo and screening passengers before entering a premises. Transportation security officers are there to prohibit dangerous items from coming into a facility, may be used to manage checkpoints and will respond to calls or signs of trouble.

One well-known example of transportation security is the TSA at your local airport. These officers are on the frontline when it comes to protecting the nation’s transportation systems.
