LVIA raises security measures to better focus on threats

HANOVER TWP., Pa. - The Transportation Security Administration is beginning to implement new, stronger screening procedures for carry-on items at Lehigh Valley International Airport this week. 

TSA says these procedures were announced last year and require travelers to place all electronics bigger than a cell phone in bins for X-ray screening. Officers will also ask travelers to remove these items and place them in a bin by themselves. 

In addition, TSA says passengers may experience more bag checks. 

“The simple step of separating personal electronic items for screening allows TSA officers to more
closely focus on resolving alarms and stopping terror threats,” said TSA's Federal Security Director for ABE Karen Keys-Turner in a news release. The new security measures do not apply to passengers enrolled in TSA Pre✓®.
