Police Presence Boosted After Deadly L.A. Airport Shooting

Local police will increase their presence at U.S. airports and the Transportation Security Administration will evaluate its procedures after a gunman killed an agency officer at Los Angeles International Airport.

The agency will discuss airport security issues "writ large" with Congress, including whether to arm officers, TSA Administrator John Pistole said at a press conference in Los Angeles yesterday.

"Obviously this gives us great concern," said Pistole, who met with the family of Officer Gerardo Hernandez, 39, the first TSA employee killed in the line of duty, and other victims of the Nov. 1 shootings. "We will look at what our policies and procedures are and what provides the best possible security."
