Protecting Transportation: Implementing Security Policies and Programs provides a thorough overview of transportation security in the United States, with a focus on policy. The book coversall major transportation modes and puts the American security system into perspective against other national and international systems. Author R. William Johnstone, a transportation security expert and member of the 9/11 Commission staff, discusses how the current transportation security system came to be and how it is performing.

Whether you are a current or aspiring transportation security professional, a policymaker, or an engaged citizen, Johnstone’s presentation equips you to understand today’s issues and debates on a problem that affects every member of the global community. Transportation security has evolved in the years since 9/11 from a relatively modest, sporadic undertaking into a multi-billion dollar enterprise employing tens of thousands. Protecting Transportation describes how that system is organized, funded, and implemented.

  • Clarifies security issues in the context of civil liberties, federal spending, and terrorist incidents in the United States and globally

Review:

"This well-written book reflects in-depth research and planning. It is not a nuts-and-bolts directive on transportation security, but a text that will help readers understand the policies behind measures intended to make travel safe." --Security Management, Protecting Transportation

"...this book covers every base, including cyber; and doesn’t neglect the truth that security in transport as in any sector has to fit in with the nature of that sector..." --Professional Security Magazine Online

"Terrorists  target transportation. A useful analysis of the history and current efforts to protect our vital infrastructure." -Thomas Kean, former NJ Governor and Chairman of 9/11 Commission
