Although airport personnel did the right thing in evacuating people as quickly as possible, it was not enough to detain the potential suspect, for nobody knew for sure who had left the briefcase on the conveyor belt. Ideally, when evacuating the area, the people in the most immediate area to the suspicious package should probably have been shuttled aside to a secure a holding area overseen by airport law enforcement until a positive identification of the owner of the brief case could be made, as Ortmeier (2017) outlines in his book on airport security.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
