CISF per­son­nel train­ing in pro­fil­ing air­line pas­sen­gers

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

To im­prove se­cu­rity stan­dards at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi air­port, Cen­tral In­dus­trial Se­cu­rity Force (CISF) per­son­nel are get­ting train­ing in pro­fil­ing pas­sen­gers from ex­perts from Is­rael— some of the best in busi­ness. Pro­fil­ing a pas­sen­ger helps se­cu­rity per­son­nel zero in on peo­ple who be­tray sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour and is usu­ally em­ployed to nab drug traf­fick­ers. A timely in­ter­ven­tion may help the per­son­nel grab a po­ten­tial ped­dler or ter­ror­ist be­fore he boards a plane.

“We are tak­ing the help of ex­perts in im­prov­ing the se­cu­rity stan­dards at air­ports. Pro­fil­ing is the most im­por­tant fac­tor in se­cu­rity as you can­not check each and ev­ery per­son be­fore he/she reaches the se­cu­rity area. Un­der the new sys­tem, a pas­sen­ger comes un­der scru­tiny as soon as he/she ar­rives at the ter­mi­nal,” said a se­nior CISF of­fi­cial, re­quest­ing anonymity.

The in­tel­li­gence team of CISF iden­tify sus­pi­cious pas­sen­gers out­side the ter­mi­nal and in­form their col­leagues about the sus­pect’s de­tails on a wire­less set.
