In this book, The Internal Threat: The Community Behind the Security Checkpoint, Dr. Stacey Tyler provides a qualitative study on the central research question that focuses on the degree to which miscommunication between TSA, airlines, and airport employees has an impact on the implementation of changes in airport security policies, particularly those regarding prohibited items that pass through security checkpoints. This behavior impacts the effective execution of airport security policies by federal law regarding carryon baggage on commercial aircraft that is specifically known as the Internal Threat.
