Denver Airport To Test Surveillance System
The Denver International Airport will begin testing a high-tech video surveillance system that will provide security personnel at the airport with enhanced video images.
Officials had complained that the grainy images from the previous video system made identifying suspicious people a difficult task. Indeed, the previous video system captured images of a woman who evaded a screening checkpoint at the airport in August 2002, but the images were so poorly defined that officials could not identify her.
The trial of the new video technology is just one of several new types of security improvements being tested by the Transportation Security Administration at airports across the nation.
