Protecting Transportation: Implementing Security Policies and Programs provides a thorough overview of transportation security in the United States, with a focus on policy. The book covers all major transportation modes and describes how security is organized, funded, implemented, and evaluated, putting the American security system into perspective against international systems. Author R. William Johnstone, a transportation security expert and member of the 9/11 Commission, discusses the pros and cons of a variety of proposals for improving current transportation security efforts. Whether you are a current or aspiring transportation security professional, a policymaker, or an engaged citizen, Johnstone's presentation equips you to understand today's issues and debates on a problem that affects every member of the global community. Transportation security in the United States has evolved in the years since 9/11 from a relatively modest, sporadic undertaking into a multi-billion dollar enterprise employing tens of thousands. Protecting Transportation describes how that system is organized, funded and implemented, and how it can be improved. * Fosters critical thinking by reviewing policy debates and the positions of key policymakers in transportation security* Clarifies issues such as safety versus security in transportation systems design, federal spending, and terrorist incidents in the United States and elsewhere* Considers the "inputs" of security policy (including laws, regulations, and programs) and the "outcomes" (such as enforcement, effectiveness metrics, and workforce morale)
