Top Airports for TSA Theft, in 2012

Back in 2012, ABC News did a freedom of information request for the numbers of TSA workers fired for theft, and the numbers were predictably quite high.

It doesn’t appear Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport made the list of the Top 20 Worst Airports. However this was based on the number of employees fired for theft, not the number of thefts reported. Perhaps the airports that did not make this list simply do not investigate thefts and therefore fire less employees?

And now, the 20 airports with the highest number of TSA employees fired for theft in 2012:

1. Miami International Airport (29)

2. JFK International Airport (27)

3. Los Angeles International Airport (24)

4. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (17)

5. Las Vegas-McCarren International Airport (15)

6. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and New York-Laguardia Airport (14 each)

8. Newark Liberty, Philadelphia International, and Seattle-Tacoma International airports (12 each)

11. Orlando International Airport (11)

12. Houston-George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Salt Lake City International Airport (10 each)

14. Washington Dulles International Airport (9)

15. Detroit Metro Airport and Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (7)

17. Boston-Logan International, Denver International and San Diego International airports (6)

20. Chicago O’Hare International Airport (5)
