TSA setting quotas for suspicious persons reports
Denver's Channel 7 has the story (non-video link).
TSA apparently has a written policy that each Air Marshal must report at least one Surveillance Detection Report (a fancy term for a suspicious person report) per month. Of course, being the subject of SDR can lead to being put on a watch list. But failure to make the quota is taken as proof that the Marshal isn't being alert.
Coming atop the stories about the Air Marshals being forced into a dress code ... for undercover work... of jacket, tie and dress shoes ... this is suggesting that TSA's hierarchy could use a good purge, and replacement by people who have some idea of law enforcement operations.
You have to wonder what kind of jackass they have coming up with stuff like that. Quotas and dress codes? Sounds like they got someone who used to be in charge of meter maids...
