Rene Dhenin, federal security director at Walker Field, said that in Walker Field's case, the airport would pay the expense of having an on-site officer, and the TSA would reimburse the airport according to the terms of an agreement that still must be negotiated.

11.27.02 Airport safety measures get mixed reviews, 27 Nov 2002 [cached]
Rene Dhenin, federal security director for the Transportation Security Administration at Walker Field, said three explosive trace detection machines began operation last week behind the ticket counters at the airport.
After passengers check in with the airlines, they move to a nearby TSA station if they're carrying baggage to be loaded on the aircraft.TSA baggage screeners check bags electronically for traces of explosives.
TSA screeners swab zippers and other fasteners of each bag with a small white pad, then place the pad in the ETD machine.The machine checks the pad for traces of explosives that might have been picked up from the baggage.
If an ETD machine registers the presence of an explosive substance, Dhenin said TSA screeners further inspect the bags and employ other procedures to determine whether the bag should be cleared for loading on the aircraft.He declined to describe those procedures in detail.
Dhenin said the explosive-detection process is running smoothly.
"We've been able to process passengers about as fast as they're checked in (by the airlines)," Dhenin said.Most passengers haven't been inconvenienced by the extra step, he said.
"We've had no problems - no delays," Dhenin said as passengers waited for flights Tuesday."This is a busy day out here, and everything's going smoothly."
11.19.02 New security force on course at Walker Field, 19 Nov 2002 [cached]
At Walker Field, the transition to federal screeners happened Oct. 19, said Rene Dhenin, the TSA's federal security director for Walker Field and airports in Montrose, Telluride and Gunnison.
Dhenin said the TSA employs 32 screeners at Walker Field, and seven to 10 screeners will be on duty during each shift.Nation- wide, the TSA employs 44,000 screeners.
Dhenin and representatives of Walker Field, the Airport Authority, the Grand Junction Police Department and Rep.Scott McInnis' office made the TSA announcement at the airport.
Dhenin said the equipment is in place in Grand Junction, Montrose and Telluride and will likely begin operation in "a few days."
Airlines now are in charge of baggage screening, but the TSA will take over those responsibilities when the new explosive-detection equipment is up and running, Dhenin said.
Dhenin said federal passenger security screeners are only part of the changes that have happened since Sept. 11, 2001, to make American air travel safer.
He said "record numbers" of federal air marshals are traveling on commercial flights, and all commercial aircraft now have reinforced cockpit doors to help keep intruders away from pilots.
He said all federal screeners complete 44 hours of classroom training and 60 hours of on-the-job training, and the fact that they're federal employees instead of private workers means the TSA can better ensure they're well-qualified to carefully screen airline passengers.
At Walker Field, Dhenin said, most of the new TSA screeners were employees of the private contractor that previously supplied screening at the airport.
Dhenin also advised holiday travelers who are taking gifts with them to wrap Christmas packages after they arrive at their destination.
In many instances, security screeners will likely unwrap gifts to examine contents before travelers board their planes, he said.
