Body Scanners Coming to Port Columbus and Cincinnati Airport
Listen to the Story
The Transportation Safety Administration says Port Columbus and the Cincinnati airport are among the next airports to receive body scanners to screen passengers.
Rod Borden, chief operating officer of the Port Columbus airport authority says up to four body scanners are expected within the next several weeks.
He acknowledges there are privacy concerns since the machines provide an image of what is beneath a passenger’s clothing, but says no one waiting in line will see that image.
Borden notes, body scanners are currently used as secondary screening devices; that is, another type of passenger screening indicates a possible problem, and the body scanner is the next option. However, a passenger is able to opt for a “pat down” instead of a body scan. Borden says these current TSA protocols are subject to change.
