TSA PrecheckAccording to a report, United States passengers left behind a total of $867,812.39 in coins as well as bills in TSA security checkpoint. The plastic bowls, which are used to collect things at the checkpoint of airports, collected about double the amount that it collected in 2011 when passengers left behind about $486,000.

 

According to CNBC, the airports with the largest intake of currency was John F. Kennedy in New York City ($75,615) followed by Los Angeles International Airport ($45,000) and Dallas Ft. Worth International Airport ($42,000.)

 

According to the 2005 law, TSA spends the annual windfall on its choice of aviation security program with all these collected money. Although it has used previous monies to expand the TSA Precheck program, it has not yet determined how it will allocate the 2016 windfall.

 

Interestingly, the aviation caveat is key, because while the TSA is best known for securing America’s airports. At times, the administration is also occasionally called upon to perform other security functions.

 

During the 58th Presidential Inaugural, for example, the TSA played a key role in supporting Secret Service efforts.
