TSA, WMATA tighten security for Inauguration Day

Posted on January 13, 2005

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will be providing security support to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) next week for President Bush's inauguration. The security enhancement will include the deployment of TSA canine teams in Metro stations and on trains. TSA will also provide federal screeners and explosive trace detection equipment for inspecting items left unattended in the rail system. "Our customers are likely to see members of our special response teams as well as TSA contingents strategically located at our stations for quick deployment," said Polly Hanson, WMATA's police chief. The inauguration is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 20.
