Learn what the TSA finds during its checks

  • Published Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, at 7:57 p.m.

Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta/.

The record: The Transportation Security Administration’s “Find of the Week.”

Why you’d want it: To learn more about what security agents at airports and other transportation centers are finding during checks. For example, for the period from Jan. 25 to 31, TSA officers found 18 loaded and five unloaded firearms and two “artfully concealed prohibited items” at checkpoints.

Where you get it: Go to the TSA’s website at www.tsa.gov. The information is featured on the home page.

How much does it cost: The information is free.
