NACA congratulates Administrator David Pekoske on his confirmation for a second five-year term as TSA’s Administrator. We strongly supported the Adminstrator’s nomination during this process and are pleased the Senate was able to act on it before the midterms. Administrator Pekoske has been been a highly effective leader, improving aviation security and closely collaborating with industry to achieve consistently positive results. We look forward to continuing to work with him as he directs an effective and constantly improving TSA.
Blue Lightning Initiative
The Blue Lightning Initiative (BLI), led by the Department of Transportation, the Department of Homeland Security, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, is an element of the DHS Blue Campaign. The BLI trains aviation industry personnel to identify potential traffickers and human trafficking victims, and to report their suspicions to federal law enforcement. To date, more than 100,000 personnel in the aviation industry have been trained through the BLI, and actionable tips continue to be reported to law enforcement.
