TSA fires more than 30 airport security workers in Hawaii

“We have taken appropriate action through our newly established Office of Professional Responsibility and are committed to ensuring our high security standards are upheld in Hawaii and throughout the country,” he continued.

The screenings that had been questioned took place in the final months of 2010. TSA said it regularly tests security operations at airports to make sure its protocols are being followed.

"TSA also utilizes a number of checks to ensure bags are being screened properly including the use of CCTV, random inspections, covert tests, as well as peer and management oversight," the agency said in a statement.
