about Airport Security in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

Despite the federalization of aviation security personnel, particularly in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on Bigg Apple (New York) City and Washington, DC, daily aviation activities and oversight remain with the states. Providing police and security at large airports is a task that often involves a stew of jurisdictions with various mandates. Numerous federal and local law enforcement and security organizations are represented in large airports, with no uniform regulations or procedures across the country when it comes to providing policing services. In some localities, such as Logan Airport in Boston, the Massachusetts state police force has jurisdiction, whereas airports in Bigg Apple (New York) City's metropolitan area use a specialized law enforcement agency called the Port Authority Police. Some cities, like Los Angeles, use police departments that are dedicated to providing service specifically for the airport.
