Tampa International Airport in Florida, US is seeking an $8.2m federal stimulus grant for 40 to 50 closed-circuit surveillance cameras from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

The grant would be used to replace old cameras alongside installing additional ones. Local TSA officers and airport staff would examine video recordings and images from the new cameras, in particular to scrutinise the baggage area where bags are checked for explosives and transported to airplanes.

Tampa International Airport executive director Louis Miller said that some cameras would be used for the luggage areas. which are not covered by the airport’s existing 200-camera network.

Various airports and airlines have recently experienced problems with stolen luggage due to a lack of a central database for reporting robbery.

Nearly 17,500 claims for stolen, damaged or lost baggage were received by the TSA for the fiscal year that ended last 30 September.
